Today, I want to talk about the action made by France President, Nicolas Sarkozy on banning of 'niqab' in France.Above is the video which is a talk between British political commentator, Imogen Lloyd Webber and the US news journalist.
It is actually a laughable matter when a non muslim talk about Islam because the person acted like a know-it-all.It makes me angry when they said things that they do not know much for example in this case they claim that veil is a cultural matter and it is not a religious matter. Islam is our way of life so from what we wear to how we do things are actually islam in making.Their perspective is that veil itself is some sort of a garment worn for cultural purpose is totally wrong because wearing 'hijab' is one of the things that is asked by Allah the Almighty.It is true some of us muslim do not prefer to wear hijab but it does not mean it is a cultural thing.We were asked to cover ourselves and yet they made it sound like we are against the law of life.It is like we are totally breaking the nature of living by having our modest lifestyle and choosing to wear hijab.
Women are prohibit to wear 'niqab' or 'burqah' because the west think we are going to uphold negative atmosphere.They think that when we stay among ourselves,we are actually building up an underground army to protest and one day may lead to terrorism just because we,muslimah prefer to keep ourselves low and choose to hide our faces behind our veils.They seem to think that we have our own agenda by wearing 'niqab'.If today they prohibit us wearing 'niqab', it will not be a strange thing if one day they will prohibit also the wearing of veils to cover our head.Islam is not just a religion, if they criticize about our style of garments ,about what we are wearing to protect ourselves, they are criticizing Islam itself.We as muslim should feel something when they talk about our sisters like that.
France thinks that this law does not discriminate people at all, whereas British think it is indeed against the human right to express themselves.Actually whatever their opinion are,this is all a propaganda from the west to keep worsen the situation and putting in the mind of people that we, muslim are to be estranged among the world population because we are to their mind different.
Actually, when they said we are different there are so many people out there that proclaimed themselves different as well.People in Britain are given freedom to express themselves.They do not judge each other by the way they look. Instead they treat people in equality because they believe in human right in freedom of expression. So the british see this is as a sort of infringement to human rights itself.
This is indeed a big issue that is made by the west to actually cause disagreement and chaos among the muslim society. They want to provoke us and promote a debate that is not going to benefit us but going to cause us to be mortified and feel oppressed. Alhamdulillah our sisters are very strong there. They do a protest to show that they do not agree with the government. This is one of the examples of our sisters there.
Kenza Drider wearing niqab on her arrival at Gare de Lyon train station in Paris, France on 11 April 2011 from Avignon for a protest. Franc officially banned women from wearing full-face veils in public places on 11 April 2011. Kenza Drider who repeatedly insists on appearing veiled in public can be fined 150 euros and ordered to attend re-education classes.
If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight are dearer to you than Allâh and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause, then wait until Allâh brings about His Decision (torment).
And Allâh guides not the people who are Al-Fâsiqûn (the rebellious, disobedient to Allâh) (At-Taubah [9:24])
That's all for now~ =)
