The initial report of the Muslim teacher suspended in a British school for wearing her veil in class, in which she claimed it was out of personal beliefs, has now been proven to have been false. She was forced to wear it by a “Fatwa” issued by her Imam, “Mufti Yusuf Sacha, a Muslim cleric in West Yorkshire”.
I had been told earlier that many Muslim girls in Britian are wearing the niqab as a sort of social statement, bucking the trend as it were, but now I don’t find the argument as convincing as before. I believe what is more closer to the truth, is the messages coming from the local Mosques to the Muslim youth in the West.
This rush to wear a veil is more out of pressure than of fashion or of one’s own “free will”. More here. KGS
