................. @Three- That perv was the hot-headed male chauvinist Omar. I also call him peeping Tom and eve teaser due to the story you mentioned. Some say he was proud that the islamic purdah existed for him. ..............

And that goes to many fools who follow silly religious edicts.. Well on that burqa last week news from London says Store detectives believe notorious shoplifter Annette Daniel now using burqa to prevent identification as she raids stores
gang boss Annette Daniel
SHOPLIFTING gang boss Annette Daniel is suspected of wearing a burqa to hide her identity from store detectives. High street security chiefs believe Daniel, 52, and her team of thieves have hidden behind burqas and niqabs – the Islamic facial veil – as their faces are so well known.
Daniel – jailed last week for her part in a £2000 shoplifting spree – is already known to wear wigs, scarves and other props to disguise her appearance. One security source said: “There has been at least one case reported where two suspected shoplifters were wearing burqas. We strongly suspect it was this gang.
some times burqas help women and men to escape jail terms..
And Rafia Zakaria writes a woderful article in today's Dawn
on how Pakistan is changing with time getting worse with time by considering purdah again, (and yes the rape of girls going to college, the beating of women professionals, the banning of women from one or another arena of public life equates to just that) it may be useful to consider, how patriarchy will once again employ women to do its dirtiest work. let us read few nuggets from her..
......a widowed aunt who relies on pity, a mother on a detached other worldliness, myriad others, cousins, sisters, grandmothers, all possess their own strategies of feminine warfare.

Now that Pakistan seems to be at the cusp of considering purdah again, (and yes the rape of girls going to college, the beating of women professionals, the banning of women from one or another arena of public life equates to just that) it may be useful to consider, how patriarchy will once again employ women to do its dirtiest work.
It will be mother’s that forbid daughters, and sisters that sabotage sisters and so on. The architecture of future limitations will utilise the very women it seeks to imprison; the future captives will construct their own cages. As the building is underway, perhaps not yet complete, some women can consider how the loss of sisterhood among women, the loss of empathy and kindness, the loss of refusing to judge another woman’s choices, castigating another woman’s words, is the mechanism of control that will enable a future of further darkness, of retrogression and seclusion.....
