Is it wrong for women in some parts of the world...
...to have to be covered up, like in India? Even though India is more careful about presreving tradition than other countries, do you think that we should be past that kind of sexism? Should women be allowed to show their faces and have as much power as men, or is it right for them to still be covered up all the time?
I think this is a question that belongs more to the women who must live with these cultures. God Bless You.
I'm not the judge of right or wrong, but I don't support women being covered up personally.
I think your are confused. It is not an Indian custom to cover a woman's face. The majority of those in India are Hindus who need not cover their faces.
However, in the Muslim world, many women are under pressure to wear the burka, The burka usually cover the faces of women.
In Afghanistan, women are forced to cover their faces. Muslims in Europe, US, Middle East, Asia and even the Muslim minority India do sometimes cover their faces. Though not all Muslim women do that.
France has now banned the burka.
Personally, I don't approve of the burka, because it hinders normal communication.
How is a woman going to eat in public? I don't find anything wrong with the bodies our creator gave us. I think we should be happy with it.
God created woman to compliment the man, that being said a woman does have the right to dress how she wants to. Women are equal to men ..... at least that is how it should be. I believe that as long as the dress is modest( not showing too much cleavage or your panties) it is okay. Sexism is not dead , but it should be.
I am in no place to say it is wrong but I do admire how much they value their women's bodies. In the US most women not only don't value their bodies, but neither do the men. I wouldn't want my fiance to be ok with me dressing like a harlot or showing off to much skin in public. My body is for his eyes only as his body is for my eyes only.
I think its up to the individual women what she prefers to do. No Muslim should force their women folk to cover-up. In the Quran it clearly states modest dressing nothing about covering ones face. It is also the same for Christian, Jew and Hindu women who obey the commandments to dress modestly.
However just like in the West when some women dress semi-naked in micro-skirts no one say's 'Why?' I think where Muslim women dress in Burka, it should also be their choice and not imposed by me or you simply because we feel uncomfortable.
