Muslim headgear

Filed under: Uncategorized — valerieyulesletters @ 8:38 am

HEADSCARVES have been feminine gear across ages and cultures, with and without wimples, and in Western as well as Eastern Europe until recently.  We all wore them in the second world war. A headscarf is the royal Queen’s favorite hat, and worn by the English aristocracy in the field.  Headscarves are useful, versatile, cheap, attractive and the best solution for a bad hair day, which for many of us is most days.  Headscarves should always be top fashion statements regardless of religion. You can’t tell religion from a headscarf.

BURQUAS are not statements of Islam.  They are Arabic.  In the East, example in the biggest Islamic nation of Indonesia, no-one until recently wore a burqa and a headscrarf was worn only when you wanted one, and usually showed the hair.
