I am arguing that the hijab is an oppression to the Muslim women in the western society. they have no freedom and feel left out. they are forced into wearing it and have no free will whether they want to or not. most of them do not feel comfortable in wearing the hijab. Also it is just a piece of cloth, it doesnt really have any significane. We are in a society that moves forward and not just stick to the old scriptures of ancestors. Please give your views and dont worry about being offensive. Be as truthfull as you can.

I respect your opinion and your right to have it. But I disagree very much with what you say. I believe that women in the Muslim faith choose to wear the hijab, which is different from them being forced to wear it. Many Muslim women have the choice to wear it. Sure there may be one or two Muslim countries that force women to wear these hoods, which i condemn very much. But the majority of women in Islam choose to wear the hijab because it is a part of their heritage.

I agree with your point that many muslim women chose to wear it becuse of their religion, but what if they dont belive in wearing it. is their any significance in it? Also they are not entitled to their freedom . They cannot wear what their other fellow women in their society wear. they are limited to their freedom. some people may judge them from what they wear they may be called terrorists, extremists and many more other offensive things. also the most important attribute to women is to show their beuty which they cannot because of their veil.
