To veil or not to veil, that is the goddamn question

Very interesting blog post by a Muslim journalist. I wish more Muslims had the same attitude.

I did not want to leave a comment in her blog. It sounded too good to be good. Too perfect to be this type of muslim. Far from the narrow fields of view about religious affiliation. She thinks she is muslim but she is not prescribing to the dictates of her religion. "..Reading all this books but she found no need to compare..", What? Where does she live? WHy read then if it is not to make critical comparisons and reveal the plus and minus. And MAKE judjement about the content, they called that critical thinking. She could then eat those books, it would not make a difference.

I have read the Torah and some Kabbalist text as well as some chapters of the Tibetian Book of the Dead. I know now FOR CERTAIN which holy book is really fake and 100% plagiarized with added comments for death and destruction. As an ex-muslim I am very happy about the discovery. She is plain delusional to think that she is a muslim. I wish there could be more muslims like her. But it is time she wakes up from her dream and wishful thinking bubble.

No comment except to say, the title of the post is hilarious. It would be nice if "to veil or not to veil" was NOT, "THE" question but sometimes it seems as if it is the ONLY question that matters in life, to some.

OK, to ALOT.

Interesting post! I have been lurking on your blog :) I am curious. You obviously are no longer muslim, but i am wondering if you have had a difficult time with that decision? I ask because much of your blog focuses on Islam and women in Islam. For an individual who has moved on in her life and made peace with with her faith does it really help you to grow if you keep focusing on the past?

I love this question....because I wonder about my own two older girls who currently veil.......what if one of them comes to me and wants to take off her scarf?

What then? I just don't have an answer to that.
