Dangers of Hijab to Muslim women and the rest of the society, hidden by the propaganda of “Hijab is my choice, not compulsion”.
Dr. Naik quotes the Hindu scriptures to show that hijaab and cross dressing are prohibited in Hinduism too and had Raja Ram Mohan Roy known this he would not have gone against the purdah (veil, hijaab) system.
Instead, What we learn from Dr. Naik’s brand of Islam is a shocking account of how unjust is the practice of forcing a women to wear a veil. If Raja Ram Mohan Roy would have known this and if the home minister of India comes to know of it, then they would’ve sure banned the veil as it has been banned in France. The reason why this practice was started is pathetic and grossly unjust. No human being can condone such injustice just for the sake of literally following your religion. The societies that don’t reform and do not respect a women are bound to perish.
Having refuted the more unjust than irrational arguments of Dr. Naik above, we draw your attention to the sane voices in the Islamic world, who are not naive to follow scriptures literally. They are proud Muslims (and Muslimahs) that live in the 21st century, respect the diversity of cultures and most importantly understand the harmful effects of such retrograde practices on health and safety:
Sample this rational article by a Canadian Muslim
This person highlights how the burqa is an ill-fit and a threat to Canadian society and the Muslim women.
a) Security: In July this year, an armed man dressed in a burka robbed the Scotiabank in Mississauga and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
b) Safety: In October 2007, a Calgary school bus was involved in a roadside accident in which one girl was killed. Although no news outlet was willing to report this, news clips of the driver showed she was wearing a very restrictive head covering that had almost certainly compromised her peripheral vision and could have been the reason she slammed into a truck parked on the shoulder on a clear day.
c) Health: New studies in England and Ireland have found that Muslim women who wear the burka or niqab (and their breast-fed children) tend to get rickets due to an insufficiency of vitamin D, through lack of exposure of their skin to sunlight. A study released by British National Health Service doctors said hijab and burka-wearing women were putting their health at risk because they do not get enough sunlight, an alarming number who wear the burka are suffering from bone deficiencies due to lack of vitamin D.
d) Gender equality: The MCC agrees that the state has no place in the bedrooms or wardrobes of the country. However, if the status of any woman in Canada is affected by what happens in the bedroom or wardrobe, be it spousal abuse or the forced wearing of attire meant to marginalize girls or women, then we feel the state must intervene. Society has a role to play to ensure the human rights of girls and women are not being compromised behind closed doors.
There’s another dangerous aspect to the veil. That it is now being forced on women in radicalized pockets even in our own country. To remind you of this reality, here’s a news byte
This post is part of following Agniveer book. To continue reading full post and to know what goes on inside the mind of an Islamic terrorist, brainwashed by radical Islamists, get this eye-opening book. (The only book of its kind to solve the problem of brainwashing and self-radicalization)
Every Muslim is NOT a terrorist
For first time, complete refutation of every point a Jihadi thinks to justify his hate against non-believers. The only book of its kind to solve the problem of brainwashing and self-radicalization.
Zakir Naik’s rise has been significantly correlated with rise of terror-attacks across the globe. The terrorists involved in Dhaka siege, the ISIS Hyderabad Module Chief, Areeb Majeed who fled from India to join ISIS – all had one trait in common. Zakir Naik was their mentor.
Anyone from Indian subcontinent who has been active on terror-related issue would have definitely come across hundreds of fanatic young Muslims who believe that Allah will grant them 72 virgins in Heaven if they convert non-Muslims and hate idol-worshipping Hindus.
The vulnerable Muslim youth from Indian sub-continent, who does not know Arabic, relies on his interpretation of Quran and Hadiths as authentic Islam. Now his spread has reached weak minds in other countries as well.
They quote verbatim from lectures and writings of Zakir Naik that are sure-shot recipe for breeding terrorists. These fanatics would turn violent if you counter-question. The situation is indeed terrifying. Unless we do something, vast number of terrorists are already breeding worldwide who would conduct another Florida attack or Dhaka killing – lone-wolf or planned – as a religious duty.
The fanatic belief-set comprises following
– Only Muslims will go to Heaven. All non-Muslims will burn forever in Hell. Even if she is Mother Teresa or Gandhi.
– Among Muslims, only those who have converted non-Muslims will go to Heaven
– Jihad against non-Muslims is gateway to Heaven
– Osama Bin Laden was not a terrorist. America is a terrorist
– Sharia Law must be implemented worldwide.
– As per Sharia Law, those who leave Islam must be killed
– In Muslim rule, non-muslims must not be allowed to preach. But Muslims must preach in non-Muslim countries
– Those who worship graves – like Sufis – are worst of creatures
– Hindus deserve to be called Kafirs – the worst of creatures
Agniveer raised alarm against Zakir Naik 8 years ago and has been working relentlessly against radical Islam. Several youth who came back from clutches of Zakir Naik have narrated shocking details of his brainwashing cartel.
To fight this rise of terror, Agniveer created detailed rebuttals to Zakir’s speeches and articles that saved vast number of youths from adopting the path of hatred. It exposed the workings of Islamic Research Foundation formed by Zakir Naik that funded and promoted people who instigated genocide and war against India.
Many of these exposes had to be withdrawn because government underestimated the threat Zakir posed to world peace and instead Agniveer had to face security threats.
In this book, we bring together all those writings that establish the threat that Zakir Naik poses. And soundly thrashes his every radical argument.
Not just Zakir Naik, the book soundly answers every radical argument of every fanatic who instigates people to adopt hate as religion.
This book can save the world if translated in major languages and circulated among vulnerable youth. And will equip non-Muslims to not fall trap to his promise of false Heaven by hating non-Muslims. It has already saved thousands and prevented many terror attacks.
The only way to counter self-redicalization is to destroy the source – those fanatics who breed hatred against non-Muslims in name of Islam that means Peace.
Funds from the book will be used to fight terrorism and prevent the next attacks.
