Although the 1936 decree impressed the West, it shocked all of Iran by stripping them of their Islamic ways. In other words, there were many Iranian women who could not accept the absence of the veil, because they viewed it as their identity as Muslim women. Furthermore, through his reform, Reza Shah was able to get Iranian women to expose their face and let their hair loose so that they could resemble the women of the West. In addition, after the 1936 proclamation, the only hair covering that was permitted was by Iranian men who wore European style hats. Last but not least, Reza Shah stressed the concept of a Western appearance to the point that he utilized both the military and police forces in order to forcibly remove a woman’s veil if she wore one in
As a female Muslim (Muslimah) I became the witness of how western questioned Islam. They always ask about my right and my obligation to follow the rules of my religion. In their perspective, Islam violates my right when it comes to get my own decision. In fact, they see this point of view as the outsiders rather than the way a muslimah sees it. I honestly feel that Islam is the best religion that gives security to the woman.
Although the notion of honor’s crime is not mentioned in the Quran or Hadith (which is a collection of words and deeds of Muhammad and his companions, comments about the Quran or of rules of conduct), to which refer fundamentalist Muslims who follow these texts to the letter, and the type of education which gives widespread in Muslim countries. It is the logical consequence of misogyny in Islam and a certain type of "education" (Dr. Ali Sina). In Islam, women are seen as sexual beings, as any part of the body of the woman is considered erotic. Verse 24: 31 of the Quran says that Muslim women should not make eye contact, nor should they reveal their beauty to men who are not from their family: ‘And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and guard their chastity, and not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and to draw their veils over their bosoms; and not display their ornaments except to their husbands, or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their son, or the son of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers son, or the son of their sisters, or their women, or their slaves, or male servants, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex.’ (Quran 24:
Thus, that clothing was one of the middle used by the Muslims to express the faith in their religion, it allowed to the enemies of France to commit terrorist acts on the French territory hiding their faces under that clothing. Francois Fillon, French former prime minister claimed that the ban of Burka is one of the urgent measures to take in order to guarantee security to the French population with less case of terrorist attacks. He describes these murders as “suicide bombers hiding under burkas” (Garton). On the other hand, there are the militants of woman rights who claim that the wear of a Burka is a sign of “oppression, submission, and male dominance”. Nicolas Sarkozy, French former president has claimed “it’s a problem of liberty and women’s dignity… a sign of subservience and debasement” (Al-Samarrai).
Luara Ferracioli, following the successful campaign to have the Burqa and Niqab banned in France, outlines the importance of the role of ‘multiculturalism’. In her article, “Challenging the Burqa Ban” (2013), Ferracioli identifies how important it is to accept and respect one’s differences in cultures in order to feel belonged. This is only truly visible under the context to which people stay true to their individuality. Therefore, because multiculturalism is supposed to embrace on equality amongst all citizens, why does France prohibit the use of Niqabs for Muslim women? In another article by Will Kymlicka “Multiculturalism: Success, Failure and the Future”, he succinctly summarizes multiculturalism as a successful policy where everyone is
After 9/11, many people though the whole Muslim community was responsible because they did not know the difference between the terrorist groups and the peaceful groups. The Muslim religion revolves around peace, but the extremists believe that Allah is telling them to terrorize people and things. People would be rude to RJ, saying that just because he was Muslim he would basically go no where. “I grew up hearing that Muslims are terrorists. I didn’t see Muslims like me on TV or in the movies: the Muslims on the screen were evil” (Khalaf 10).
The iblees which is mentioned in the Quran the Satan that astray all the humans and jinn kind from the right path because he was the one to disbelieve after being one of the best believers so much so that he was allowed to be with the angels. Iblees out of pride he disobeyed Allah and he has taken the pledge to misguide all human and jinnkind. The following verses from the Quran tell the story of iblees, “So the angels prostrated – all of them entirely, “except iblees, he refused to be with the ones who prostrated”. In the following verses Allah asked all of them to prostate to Adam (peace be
All monotheist religions, without exception, are basically anti-women. They are against the freedom and rights of women; they oppress women’s liberty under the name of tradition, culture, customs and patriarchal systems. In Muslim countries the situation is worse than elsewhere, clearly because there is no separation between religion and state. The law is based on religion also known as the “Sharia” law, which is the source of legalizing the oppression against women. This type of law being more prominent in Islam countries doesn’t necessarily mean that it respects the laws of ethics.
Malala exclaimed how she was, “far luckier than most girls” (Yousafzai, 19) because she was permitted something that most Pakistani girls don’t have; a school education. Malala loved school and the uniforms. She was always a top student, and her grades always meant the world to her. However, when Fazlullah began his radio program, he announces that schools for girls should be banned in accordance with the Holy Quran.
Violence was a common element in the Eleventh century Muslim countries. In Maalouf’s Samarkand, violence culminated public life, whereby the public condemned liberal thought.

In Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk explores the theme of violence through chaotic events.
The people of Somalia have different sets of clothing specifically for each gender.

Hoodoo was a secret religion (or folk magic) practice by West Africans. They used Hoodoo to cure diseases, for protection, and occasionally punishment. The purpose of Hoodoo was to allow people access to supernatural forces to improve their lives. Hoodoo is claimed to help people attain power or success ("luck") in many areas of life including money, love, health, and employment. Hoodoo is neither a religion, nor a denomination of a religion—it is a form of folk magic that originated in West Africa and is mainly practiced today in the Southern United States.
By FedEx firing Mr. Polk, they are in direct violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A similar example of a potential violation can be seen in the Muslim community. Many Muslim women choose to wear headscarves or veils to cover themselves as they see that is pleasing to God (Arabs in
Hijab is a demonstration of worship among Muslim women. In the United States, wearing hijab is a privilege ensured by the First Amendment, as the right to speak freely and freedom of religion. Then again, hijab has additionally turned into an noticeable marker, with many non-Muslims seeing it as a political statement. The Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution prohibit elected and state governments from making laws or decides that particularly deny ladies from withholding the hijab. Not only in the Constitution but carious government social liberties laws forbid elected and state authorities and some private on-screen characters from victimizing ladies who wear the hijab.
The way that Malcolm X talked about other religions was very hateful. Pretty much if they did not agree with the teachings of his faith they were to be cast aside and seen as evil. The problem with his statements were that instead of coming logically
