Jack Straw Versus The Veil Of Aisha bint Talha


The so called Muslim groups who are raving over Jack Straw ‘s decision to politely ask Muslim women wearing a nikab(the veil covering the face)to unveil are ignorant of the fundamental tenets of true Islam. Some Islamic psychos and schizos just like picking quarrels at the slightest hint of any Western criticism of their erroneous practices of Islam.


Aisha bint Talha the sweetheart of Prophet Muhammad even went out without a veil!

Beyond the Near East, the practice of hiding one's face and largely living in seclusion appeared in classical Greece, in the Byzantine Christian world, in Persia, and in India among upper caste Rajput women. Muslims in their first century at first were relaxed about female dress. When the son of a prominent companion of the Prophet asked his wife Aisha bint Talha to veil her face, she answered, "Since the Almighty hath put on me the stamp of beauty, it is my wish that the public should view the beauty and thereby recognized His grace unto them. On no account, therefore, will I veil myself."

I believe that as women we should reject Jack Straw's attitude and arrange a day or week even, of solidarity with muslim women and their right to choose. We should nominate a day and we all wear a veil

This protest will echo that in reverse, of the protest made by the population of Denmark, when Hitler made all Jews in Denmark wear a yellow star. In response, the King of Denmark himself wore a yellow star and the whole population followed.

By all women coming together for one day to wear the veil, we can learn what it feels like to wear a veil and we can express solidarity with our Muslim sisters. The date I suggest is the 1st November

best wishes

May I wear one too in solidarity with you all.

Or do send me the picture of you in your nikah, hijab, abaya, burga and the rest.

God bless.

every woman should be left alone to decide that...not some Jack Straw. Although I detest women being forced to wear it by some muslim men.
