‘I’d love to but my husband won’t let me’: Muslims gather for prayers in western Sydney – where women aren’t allowed to talk about their burqas without checking with a man first

Jihad Watch

About the burqa (and the niqab, which is routinely conflated with the burqa in the Western press), mainstream Muslim groups push the lie that Muslim women wear the garment by choice out of modesty, despite the overwhelming evidence that proves otherwise. Women have been jailed, flogged and executed for not wearing the burqa in Islamic states, and in Western countries, even honor-killed.In Iran, women threw off their chadors in a declaration of freedom; many were subsequently jailed, tortured and threatened with the worst violence.

In Australia, Senator Pauline Hanson has rightly slammed feminists as “pathetic” for not supporting a burqa ban.

Then there are those who tell Westerners that the burqa is not a religious requirement, but that claim is false according to the Quran:

(Quran 24:31) And tell the believing women to reduce of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.

If a woman does not cover, she is fair game to be assaulted:

(Quran 33:59) O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused.

When it comes to women’s rights in Islam, women are inferior. Men are sanctioned to beat them if they are not obedient (cf. Quran 4:34).

It is most peculiar that feminists in the West have embraced a two-tier system of equality for women. For Western women, men are promptly deemed to be abusive if they raise their voices, call women names, slap them, and the like. There are also laws in place to protect women against abuse, as well as women’s shelters. For some eason, however, Western feminists say nothing about abuse by Muslim men against Muslim women or the mass rape by Muslim men of infidel women, as was revealed by the massive coverups of Muslim gang rape activity in the UK. It is widely known in Western countries that in abusive relationships, women do not have the freedom to speak for themselves. So logically, it should be recognized that since women are considered inferior in Islam, and since Islam warns them to be obedient or face a beating and to veil themselves, then they are genuine victims. What differentiates the victimization of Muslim women is that it is sanctioned by their religion, so that there is a hesitation among Western feminists to view their enforced inferiority as abuse, lest they appear “Islamophobic.”

The highest Islamic authority in Egypt, the Grand Mufti Shawki Ibrahim Abdel-Karim Allam, has left no doubt in his recent statement:

Religion does not accept different explanations for verses that are absolutely clear just to fit into countries’ current cultures. These verses are clear and considered fundamental to Sharia… trying to make them other than what they are shakes the foundations of Islam.

The burqa has no place in free societies, both for safety reasons and in keeping with the principle of the equality of women and men.

As the article below points out:

Muslim women wear the burqa to avert people’s gaze, yet they’ve drawn the eye of the entire nation by doing so.

Journalists from Daily Mail Australia decided to go out and investigate what the Muslim women had to say for themselves. What they found should have been expected:

Muslim women wearing the burqa said they can’t talk about their decision to wear it because their husbands won’t let them.

Some comments from the burqa-clad women whom Daily Mail tried to approach on the subject of the burqa:

“I would love to but my husband won’t let me.”

“I’m sorry I can’t. My husband won’t like that.”

“No, I would need to speak to my husband about it.”

“My husband doesn’t want me speaking about it, sorry.”

And “one woman refused to speak to Daily Mail Australia and quickly walked away when asked about her burqa.”

During a routine blood test in 2017, the blood technician informed me that many burqa-clad women come in for blood tests and are not allowed to speak to the medical staff. Their husbands do the talking. When time arrives to roll up her sleeve, burn marks and/or bruises are sometimes discovered. The staff keeps quiet and talks among themselves or to visitors to the clinic about their horror and frustration. The West is far down the road toward accepting a two-tier system, with Sharia on one side and Western principles of human rights on the other. When the two clash, Sharia usually wins, as Westerners are phobic about being called “Islamophobic.” Westerners have been bullied and beaten into accepting this idea, and that bullying is ongoing.

“‘I’d love to but my husband won’t let me’: Muslims gather for prayers in western Sydney – where women aren’t allowed to talk about their burqas without checking with a man first,” by Sahar Mourad, Daily Mail Australia, November 26, 2018:

Muslim women wear the burqa to avert people’s gaze, yet they’ve drawn the eye of the entire nation by doing so.

Right-wing politician Pauline Hanson has been leading the charge on Muslim clothing that covers the entire face – by calling for a ban on the garment being worn in public.

In a controversial and inflammatory stunt in August 2017, Ms Hanson even wore the burqa into the federal Senate to highlight her campaign.

But while nothing came of her stunt, hostility towards the garment remains, and many don’t get why Muslim women in Australia choose to wear it – with Ms Hanson claiming she has the backing of many Australians.

To get a better understanding from the women themselves, Daily Mail Australia visited Bankstown and Lakemba in Sydney’s Muslim heartland in an attempt to lift the veil on what is perhaps the most controversial piece of women’s clothing since the bikini was invented.

Muslim women wearing the burqa said they can’t talk about their decision to wear it because their husbands won’t let them.

A burqa or a niqab is a veil used to cover a woman’s face, and is worn by a small minority of Muslim women. The majority of Muslim women wear a headscarf which reveals their whole face.

When approached by Daily Mail Australia, five women confessed their husbands would not like them speaking about it.

‘I would love to but my husband won’t let me,’ one woman told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I’m sorry I can’t. My husband won’t like that,’ another confessed.

‘No, I would need to speak to my husband about it,’ one woman said.

‘My husband doesn’t want me speaking about it, sorry,’ another burqa-clad woman said.

One woman refused to speak to Daily Mail Australia and quickly walked away when asked about her burqa.

A woman who arrived in Australia from Tripoli in Lebanon said she loves wearing the burqa but would not share her name because ‘my husband wouldn’t like that’….
