The author errs in her report. While Islam says nothing about enforcing a head to toe body bag, no one in Islam is ever really free “to choose their own path”, it all depends upon the society in which they live. If they happen to live in the West, (before Saudi money influenced mosques) you’ll see looser standards, meaning more freedom to choose.
Even in a non-Western countries (but heavily influenced by Western standards…) you would have seen this “freedom” on some level in varying degrees. But, whenever Islam is seen in ascendancy you’ll see the push to Islamize themselves and then the non-Muslim areas within their range of influence.
NOTE: Chiara Onassis is either ignorant or pushing a Muslim apologetics.
