Burqa: BS vs Reality

“The practice of face-masking using a burka or niqab is not mentioned in the Koran. All that is required under Islamic law is that both genders dress modestly”- writes  DR TAJ HARGEY in Mail Online

Oh really? So why does the Quran orders Muslim women to “draw their cloaks close round them” (stress on close)?

Well, the good doctor Taj goes out on a limb to reassure infidel Brits that they are within their rights to ban the freedom sack:

The burka is an alien, cultural monstrosity…. and it CAN be banned in Britain

Nice try. But not one a good Muslim would support.

The Bunglawussie shrieks, because he knows that doctor Taj is wrong. To be sure, lets have a look to see what the Koran says:

Quran – 33:59 Allah says: O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (tanslated to close) – i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed.

And Allah is Ever of Forgiving, Most Merciful.


France’s burka ban is a victory for tolerance

Britain’s politicians take fright at the idea – but Sarkozy’s brave step is both popular and right , says William Langley.

    Muslim Council: women cannot debate wearing veil

    The body which claims to be the voice of Britain’s Muslims has told women that wearing the veil is “not open to debate”.

    The Telegraph… The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said that not covering the face is a “shortcoming” and suggested that any Muslims who advocate being uncovered could be guilty of rejecting Islam.

    That little statement from the MCB should be taken as a veiled threat, as rejecting Islam and apostasy are one in the same in the minds and laws of many Muslims and punishable by death.

    In a statement published on its website the MCB, warns: “We advise all Muslims to exercise extreme caution on this issue, since denying any part of Islam may lead to disbelief.

    “Not practising something enjoined by Allah and his Messenger… is a shortcoming. Denying it is much more serious.” Threat

    The statement quotes from the Koran: “It is not for a believer, man or woman, that they should have any option in their decision when Allah and his Messenger have decreed a matter.” Pretty sure the Koran only speaks of modesty for all Muslims.

    The statement will add to controversy about the veil after France earlier this week banned the full-face covering.

    “There is no case for a French-style ban in the UK and virtually no serious person supports it,” said Haras Rafiq, of the moderate Muslim think-tank, Centri.

    “But by this statement, effectively suggesting that the veil is an obligation, the MCB have put themselves at the opposite extreme of the spectrum.”

    The statement is signed by the MCB’s then secretary-general, Mohammad Abdul Bari, and his deputy, Daud Abdullah. It was published in the wake of an earlier controversy about the niqab but passed without notice.

    It remains available on the MCB website as a statement of policy.

    Other signatories of the statement include Imran Waheed, spokesman of the extremist group Hizb ut Tahrir and several other extremists including Haitham al-Haddad, who has denounced music as a “prohibited and fake message of love and peace”. All 27 signatories, who describe themselves as “Islamic groups and scholars,” are male.

    Dr Bari stepped down as secretary-general of the MCB last year, but remains chairman of the hardline East London Mosque, whose chief imam, Abdul Qayum, also signed the statement.

    Dr Bari is also a former president of the fundamentalist Islamic Forum of Europe, which controls the mosque and which advocates a sharia state in Europe.

    The MCB received significant funding under the previous government and was seen as the main representative voice of Britain’s estimated 2.8 million Muslims but has not received any official money since February 2010.

    The MCB did not respond to enquiries.
