  2. Britain ban the veil someday by taking the support from some Arabian countries leader. as like Qatar leader don’t like the veil.
    Some people have a choice in the world; they have always liked to do something on the contrary. Female is so necessary to wear hijab than male, But some male leaders are using hijab in the Arabian, And Nicolas Sarkozy can realize the real fact, so Nicolas Sarkozy make a newly law to ban Hijab at first of all, To make smile through some Arabian leaders.
    Quran 24:31 tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment [i.e., beauty] 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 [i.e., slaves], 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….

    Quran 33:59 O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful….
    Could we compare between USA and south Arabia of raping. The USA has been one of the highest rates rape in the world…
