I believe i beat the credit for the scoop , by exactly one minute.
As for topic .
How can you tell a person , they can not show their face in public ?
Our face is how people identify who we are. It is how our neighbors recognize us when they say good morning .
To ban people from showing their face is to isolate them from any healthy meaningful social interaction. And we are social beings.
How can someone covered in hood really interact with others ? Forcing someone to cover their face is like throwing him. in some prison of isolation.
This also limits their ability to work , something many afghan families depend on.
Afghanistan already has one of the highest rates of illiteracy in the world - now they want to cause problems for all those woman school teachers , to make things worse ?
And they dare do that in the name of religion ? How does it contribute to that , if most Afghans cant even read the Quran ?
It is not only unjust but counter productive, a society that cripples itself.
All fair points but in reality societies like Afghanistan, it is more likely covering your face may end up saving you from all sorts of harassment.
The Quran sets minimum requirements for modesty, the societal dictation shapes the rest.
