Damn, I wish I had a good-quality nikaab like that. I own a couple but I wear them in secret because my (muslim) surroundings would think I've gone mad. They are so much fun to wear, though. You can go anywhere and unless people see what house you came out of, nobody knows who you are.
But it's my face, I reserve the right to use it to communicate or not. Some moments, I like my privacy. I spend 12 hours of my day using communication to save people; I feel I can afford to have a few moments where I'm not using all those muscles. They need some rest.
Hiding one's face in a public arena is hiding from responsibility of one's actions. Cowardness. If some one is wanted for a crime it is eazy to hide in puplick when menny others cover there face the same way.
If one is wanted for a crime, it's very easy to hide in public even without a face veil. I am sure you know that, somebody with the maturity to produce the works you do. The only way to make sure we stop hiding is to barcode everybody and to regularly scan everybody. That's actually where iris recognition is coming in. Otherwise, today I wear one "look" to a crime, and tomorrow I change my "look" to evade detection. I don't need a face veil. I can do it by changing my hairstyle, my hair colour, my clothes, my makeup... These things work.
As to the cowardness call, I completely agree on it. As I said before, I spend a lot of my time being courageous for people's sake, and now and then I feel like being a coward. Now and then I can't face people but I can't face being on my own.
nice image but something that most of "westerners" & lots of "nowadays Muslims" don't know about this so-called "Islamic" female custom, it's a "traditional" custom of Bedouins (traveling-tribes of desert) & it has nothing to do with Islamic regulations of female outfit as 1st Muslims 1400 years ago (mostly living in desert town i.e Urban) didn't wear it or force their women to.
in fact, for a Muslim woman to preform Prayer & pilgrimage (most important Islamic action) it's forbidden to cover her face & even dumb Muslim extremists know that but they ignore that fact like many other things.
Thank you for the religion lesson put I just saw your DA page. Egyptian nazi... idiots are everywhere. NS is a ideology for morans and holocaust denial links make you one sad boy. BBC Auschwitz: The Nazis and the 'Final Solution' Episode 01 [link]
I appreciate that, but you're still young and see the world as you wish to see it. As you get older and mature you will have no choice but to recognize the world in the reality. Perhaps then your views and opinions may change. I sort of hope not because the world needs people like you. And I mean that in a positive way.
I personally think that some people are too devoted to their religion, and i really like this concept. Religion can be so powerful that it can persuade people into thinking that certain things exist, are there, aren't there, used to be there, will be there, and so on. So i think this is the best way you could have created this.
