Why Muslim women should thank Straw


Such a wonderful Article. It is so refreshing to read such nice views expressed in such a forthright manner, especially when it’s coming from a Muslim woman pen. In past and even today we have listened to radical, fundamentalist for too long. Now its time for us, and for those who enjoy British culture, British values and British tradition and main thing “Democratic Freedom” to stand up for our real British values and try to defend it in proper and lawful manner.

My mother has always worn traditional Kashmiri clothes — the salwaar kameez, a long tunic worn over trousers, and the chador, which is like a pashmina worn round the neck or over the hair. But no one in my immediate family — here or in Kashmir — covers their face with a nikab (veil). As a child I wore the salwaar kameez at home — and at school a typical English school uniform. My parents never felt that the uniform compromised my faith; the important thing was that I would fit in so that I could take advantage of all the opportunities school offered. I was the hockey team captain and took part in county athletics: how could I have done all of this wearing salwaar kameez, let alone a veil?

  1. Faith and clothes are independent of each other, right? And why does only apply to women?

    Jack Straw said what many people are thinking so good on him. Then the army of Political Correctness marches on …

  2. At last, a reasonable muslim voice. I know they are out there, but it’s good to actually hear one. And yes, three cheers for Straw. LOL – I have a sense in the politically correct army marched below his window he’d piss on them.

    lol I guess they will be 100 m champion because this veil thing did helped terrorist to runaway form Britain:)

    “A MALE suspect in a major anti-terrorist investigation in Britain escaped capture by allegedly disguising himself as a Muslim woman dressed in a burka, The Times can reveal.

    The man, who was wanted in connection with serious terrorist offences, evaded arrest for several days as police searched for him across the country.

    The fact that a fugitive remained at large after disguising himself in an Islamic dress which covered his face will further fuel the debate sparked by Jack Straw, Leader of the House of Commons, about the wearing of the veil”
