    yeezevee, you haven't answered my question. what proof do you have of linking the school with the video?

    IB INSPECTOR babooshka   wants to see the bottom of that video and the hate preaching  Islamic schools that preach Islamic hadith  junk  in London.,  

    well certain information on certain issues should NOT be discussed/aired on public with personal PCs,  If you do that., you ....your PC ....your house/relatives/friends/pets/your phones .. everything gets tagged from different sides and from different agencies .,

    anyways  So dear IBI babooshka  ,  to answer your question to your satisfaction what info you need for linking that    video to a school in London??

    Quote
    that school is in Yorkshire. I would expect some of the pupils at least to have an Asian/Yorkshire slant to their accent. they all sound so...........middle eastern to me.

    hmm  good  point ,, good observation by  IB INSPECTOR babooshka  .. Cheesy Cheesy

    So I must trust what you tell me and not ask any questions regarding where you got the vid from in case I get spied upon by some 'agencys'.

    scare tactics. isn't that what the prophets used to do when they had no back up? "believe in me and don't ask questions cos you'll go to hell''

    you gonna have to do better than that fella.

    i'm no fan of the niqab/burqa but you can't force people to take it off by insulting them. just like you can't bomb a country into becoming a peaceful nation. this is all very messed up. we need to educate people. education is the only way.

    I happened across a blog that made me think of this.  Now, the questions here are pretty ignorant and insulting, but...

    this sort of thing rubs me the wrong way.  I guess because it sort of implies that this person's experience with Islam is universal, and any concern with issues of sexism are just the products of racism.

    My response- 

    "It's great that many women can make these choices. But Islam doesn't let everyone make these choices. That's where the concern is, and equating objection to the ideology of Islam with racism against individual muslims empowers the conservatives. Generally, westerners who aren't born into Islam don't have to worry about being oppressed by Islam. And there are western muslims who are pressured by the religion to do things. The fact that that isn't the case for you and the people you know doesn't mean it doesn't occur."

    Now, on the other hand, it is true, there is racist type anti-mulsim sentiments- folks who equate all refugees with Daesh for instance.   So her point is not completely coming from nowhere.  Still, I feel like this black and white mentality that criticism of Islam is racism is equally bad, especially since it seems to empower religious conservatives and is used against women critics who have suffered under islam.

    Hijab wasn't a choice for me. From a young age I had to wear it every time I went to the mosque, then I had it drummed into me that one day I'd be wearing it full time. My dad had strict Muslim friends as well, which influenced how he was with hijab on me. I remember one of his friends pulled up the hood of my coat when I was 6 years old and said I should be covered up. I find things like that shocking and the fact that my dad didn't speak up for me really disappointed me. Nevertheless, I wore it full time from the age of 10. A lot of Muslims have this belief it needs to be worn as early as possible, so the girl 'gets used to it', so way before puberty. All it really does is stop your childhood. You're wearing hijab, you can't play around in the park, it looks bad! I felt like when I started to wear hijab I lost everything. I suddenly had to be super sensible and act like a grown woman when I was still a child. I used to rollerblade and I had to stop that. I was never allowed to ride a bike.

    I never took it off until a year ago, when I had moved away from home and felt more able to do it.

    Yeah wearing proper Islamic dress made me weak as hell from lack of exercise and I never knew. When I started wearing western clothes and running around with the kids outside I became stronger at forty than I ever had been at twenty. Which was shocking and pathetic.

    I started going to ladies only exercise classes, my dad didn't like the clothes I wore to the classes, but I was covered up outside anyway lol.

    The lack of vitamin D would annoy me. I love having the sun on my hair and my arms in the summer.

    It took me two years to get used to that. My hair in the wind felt alive, and when it hit my face I always thought it was a bug or something icky- I would go to grab it and end up pulling on my hair. I might have looked a bit crazy.

    The hijab/niqab makes you inevitably uglier besides the health issues. Uglier in the sense that you can't exercise and causes you to often see no to very little sun which affects your hair and skin. The hijab often tears your hair, for example I remember noticing my hairline thinning, because I was an "active" munaqqabah which meant I wore the hijab/niqab for hours each day. I got rashes because I have sensitive skin, and the cloth itching on my skin in hot weather was not ideal so to speak. But I did all of that for the sake of Allah, and then when I stopped believing the hijab/niqab was my first and biggest concern to get rid of. It says a lot about the effects of hijab on a woman quality of life.

    My hairline did not recover. I think it has been close to five years now since I took it off, and still I can tell. I had to live with non-relatives for a long time and so I wore it not just at work but also at home, for years.

    @OP:

    It's certainly a choice for some women in the West who can have more de facto legal and cultural protection for choosing not to wear it. For people like my sister and some of my other female relatives, no one is forcing them, and they could quite easily choose otherwise and that decision wouldn't really be seen as threatening in either a family or societal context.

    Unfortunately, this group is a small minority of those who wear the hijab throughout the world.

    I have short hair, chin length, but curls have this tendency to just get all over my face. I still prefer it over hijab though lol.

    I also have some hairline thinning, my hairdresser told me. I don't see the point of all the covering up if it ends up being bad for your health, as in you don't get much sun, your hair is always strapped down tightly on your head. I believe you can still be 'modest' without hijab. I believe that the way I dress now is still covered up, but in a different way. We don't need to wear a tent. That's another way guys have it better in Islam, they don't suffer from lack of vitamin D or their hair being covered.

    Long journeys were annoying too. Needing to fix my hijab, my hair all coming out etc. Then you just know someone will point out a stray hair as if its the end of the world if someone sees said stray hair.

    I might not have had such strong views against it if I had been given a choice. I would love to have a daughter, so I can see her being free and making her own choices in terms of religion etc.

    I never paid for haircuts when I wore hijab, I just kept it long enough to bind up and out of the way so I could cover it and hacked off the end as needed. The past four years I have spent far too much on haircuts. Last fall I just shaved it all off and I have enjoyed not having to worry about it since then.

    I remember a lot of Somali sisters wore the hijab even in front of other women, if they didn't knew them well, which meant they wore the hijab since the age of 5, and for the most part of the day especially after reaching adolescence. I also noticed a lot of Somali sisters had hair problems. Some were even semi-bald. I wonder if there is a correlation, or just a coincidence.  Cry Vitamin D deficiency can cause hair loss.

    Some studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency has some correlation with autism, and the Somali diaspora have noticed that children diagnosed with autism have increased in the community. They even call it the "Swedish ailment".

    I still paid for haircuts while wearing hijab because I didn't want to just let my hair go. My hair was always flattened anyway and I never got to see just how much volume I had until I took it off. I remember my hair would look awful at weddings because I had to travel there with hijab on thus destroying the style.

    I wonder if our hair can recover? Is hairline thinning permanent? If so I'm pretty mad I spent some of the best years of my life with my hair all covered and getting slowly destroyed.

    I'm not sure it can ever be what it once was, to be perfectly honest. I think my forehead grew at least one finger thick when I tried comparing how it looked when I was 17 and how it looked at 27 Grin  Cry My hair recovered in all other aspect though, except my hairline moved up a centimeter. But my forehead had some room for lengthening, so to speak, so no bigger dammage there alhamdulillah.
