Argument: Hijab is modest non-identity-concealing alternative to burqa

Issue Report: Ban on Muslim burqa and niqab


Ghada Al Atrash Janbey. “On Quebec’s Decision to Ban the Muslim Niqab.” Dissident Voice. April 17th, 2010: “I would also like to make clear that I am not implying one needs to shed his/her identity in another country. In fact, when not taken to extreme measures (as is the case with the niqab), the hijab covering the hair can make a positive statement about celebrating religious beliefs or cultural traditions as is the case with an Indian wearing her flamboyant silk Sari or a Pakistani wearing her traditional Salwar Kameez.”
