If you want to discuss otherwise, I'm sure I can dig up more than a few stories about what happens to women who disobey in these cultures/religions.
Also, I will admit - I don't deal with anything wearing a burqa or niqab. I just don't see them as people. At the most, they are floating set of eyes... like Casper.
I live in Malaysia and I never saw any Burqa or Niqab wearing women before. This Niqab and Burqa is mostly from Pakistan or Afghan or around that area. As far as I know they impose their male dominance upon woman in the name of Islam.
I speak of what I see here. I remember someone says the govt provide the law and support of one to wear tudung or scarf here. But it's up to the women to wear them or not because its pretty much between them and God.
And this is how most of them wear it. They show their face and hand. Like that hijab there.
