A sad day for so-called freedom
So much for "freedom"!
I won't write about this again, we all know this issue way too well and I've written about it before. I just feel very sad that this ridiculous law has actually been officially passed. Also, just reading peoples comments in response to the articles shows me that bigotry and intolerance, mixed with ignorance seems to be the order of the day.
And they continue to sell us their false ideas of "freedom" and "democracy".
I know this comes as a victory to many, including some Muslims who argue adamanatly that the niqab and burqa is nothing but a cultural symbol. In all the arguments, discussions, debates and discourses, everyone seems to be missing the main point.
The freedom to choose what they want to wear has just been taken away from our Muslim sisters in France!!!
How can anyone celebrate this?
All I can say is that Allah sees all that happens and Allah is The Knower of all things.
Allah says in the Holy Qur'an 8:30 "Verily they plan, but Allah also plans and Allah is the best of planners".
May Allah gives us all, especially our French Muslim Sisters, the strength to continue in His Path. Inshaa Allah!
