Niqab Debate Highlights- Ummah Channel Show

Ummah Channel UK did a 3 day special surrounding the discussions on the Niqab which recently resurfaced again. I was invited as a guest on Day 1 to share my views on the issue.

    If Muslim women wear the hijab regardless , this should not be debatable at all , its their way of distinction for Muslim women , why you have to justify what you wear ? , fear ? or western government is trying to impose its draconian rules on minorities ?? Given that it’s been ten years since 9/11 and years after UK’s involvement in AFG and IRAQ – wouldn’t it follow that such veiled women bombers would have already appeared by now?

    “The former teacher said “wearing the head covering was difficult for me because I am a Christian”.

    In the Holy Bible, 1 Corinthians Chapter 11 Verse 6 it says “for if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered”.

    In modern parlance this means “If she refuses to wear a head covering, she should cut off all her hair but since it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, she should wear a covering”.

    She does not sound to be a committed Christian to me and appears to cherry pick which parts of the Bible she wants to follow and ignore the bits she does not like.”
