Indian Muslim Women come out in support of 'Hijab': RSA
Controversial topic, Muslim women should wear 'Hijab'(Burqa) or not?
Of course they will decide it they want to wear Burqa or not. Nobody have any right to say what a Muslim women should wear.
Hundreds of women shown solidarity for the cause of wearing Burqa in South Africa.If Muslims do not interfere with any religion, at-least in case of clothing culture, why should anyone pass resolution what muslim should wear.
Hundreds of Indian Muslim women here have come out in support of Muslim woman's right to wear 'Hijab,' a traditional headgear, worldwide.
Over 500 women visitors pledged their support for an international campaign asserting Islamic tradition of wearing Hijab during a live broadcast by the Johannesburg-based radio service Channel Islam International (CII) in the mainly Indian area of Lenasia over the weekend.
Muslims across the world are protesting against a ban on 'Hijab' in France. The CII gave a free scarf to every woman who voiced her support to the campaign.
"Although we are fortunate to have strong constitutional support for the rights of Muslim women in South Africa to wear the Hijab, it is surprising that countries with supposedly far longer democracies are now denying this right to the extent that innocent Muslim women are now coming under attack," CII Director Ashraf Seedat told PTI.
