The wearing of the veil is a choice, Islam says...except when it isn't

We constantly hear that women are free in Islam, that they have all the freedoms Western women have and are honored and revered within Islam.  It is only in hardline Islamic countries where the Niqab, or Hijab, or Burqa are required, we are told and other less strict Muslim countries allow women to choose what they wear.

In the West women are free to wear what they please, except when it clashes with the values and norms of Islamic doctrine.  If, as a female you value your life, you will cover yourself to prevent men from becoming too lustful.  After all, you as the woman are responsible for how men feel and react to you, and if you are uncovered you are considered "meat" to be used as the men see fit.

In England Islam has been on the march for decades and this latest episode of Islam flexing their muscle is another to add to the ever-growing story of the death of Britain one small nick at a time.

Death by a thousand Islam cuts.

From The Telegraph April 16 by Andrew Gilligan

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said that not covering the face is a "shortcoming" and suggested that any Muslims who advocate being uncovered could be guilty of rejecting Islam.

Called apostasy it is an automatic death penalty for any Muslim who leaves, disputes, negates or rejects Islam, Allah or Muhammad.

In a statement published on its website the MCB, warns: "We advise all Muslims to exercise extreme caution on this issue, since denying any part of Islam may lead to disbelief.

"Not practising something enjoined by Allah and his Messenger… is a shortcoming. Denying it is much more serious."

The statement quotes from the Koran: "It is not for a believer, man or woman, that they should have any option in their decision when Allah and his Messenger have decreed a matter."

The statement will add to controversy about the veil after France earlier this week banned the full-face covering.

Lovely religion Islam is, isn't it.
