Top marks in Muslim appeasement to Pleckgate High School in Blackburn for pushing Islam onto the non Muslim pupils and staff. Located in a heavily Islamized area already, im sure those non Muslims at the school are very much aware of the Muslim way of life without having more of it forced down their throats having to participate in Hijab day. The local press reported:
Lancashire students and teachers celebrated the Muslim way of life when they wore headscarves for a day. Pleckgate High School marked World Hijab Day yesterday – an international movement designed to promote community cohesion. The movement was set up by New York resident Nazma Khan, who came up with the idea as a means to foster religious tolerance and understanding by inviting both Muslim and non-Muslim women to experience the hijab for one day.It takes place every year on February 1.
While just under five percent of Britain’s 63 million population are Muslim, there are no official numbers on how many women wear a headscarf or head veil, known as the hijab, but anecdotally the number of women who choose to cover their hair is growing.
Abdul Hamid Qureshi, chairman of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, said: “Muslim women are becoming more conscious of their faith and are adhering to the hijab more and more. “Now I think it’s increasingly happening. In every household if there are three women, at least one will be wearing it.“I think because of the internet age women are becoming more concious. They want to know who they are, and about their faith.” Muslim women are required to observe the hijab in front of any man they could theoretically marry.
Mr Qureshi said the Koran tells women to dress modestly, and cover their chest and head. He said: “People choose. Some people don’t wear it. It’s not a sinful act not to wear it but it’s a Koranic instruction, so you can’t defy it either.”
Muslim women wearing hijabs and burkas is nothing to do with potential husbands seeing them uncovered. If that was the case why once they are married are they still expected to wear them? No Muslim women are forced to wear them because the husbands / fathers know that other Muslim males cannot be trusted not to act on their deviant sexual urges, forcing themselves onto the girls/women should they become aroused at the sight of flesh.
Quran 033.059 : O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Muslim and non-Muslim staff and students took part in the day at Pleckgate, organised by RE teacher Shahiesta Raja. She said: “It went really, really well. Lots of members of staff wore it, Muslim and quite a few non-Muslim girls as well.“It helps them to understand how it must feel for a Muslim woman on a daily basis, and to respect why they wear it, and that they make a choice to wear it.”
Pendle’s prospective parliamentary candidate Azhar Ali said: “World Hijab Day is done across the world, in different countries, and there’s no compulsion in this.“It gives people a different perspective and I think anything that brings people together is a good thing.”
US First Lady Michelle Obama came under fire recently for choosing not to cover her hair on a visit to Saudi Arabia. Blackburn Councillor Salim Mulla said: “In my opinion she should have conformed to the values and the principles of the country and should have worn a scarf. It would have shown respect to the Muslim community.”
But Blackburn MP Jack Straw said her decision was ‘a matter between the US protocol department and the Saudis’.”He added that he supported women who choose to wear a hijab. He said: “I’m happy for people to wear the headscarf.“I absolutely respect their right to do so.”
Blackburn Councillor Salim Mulla’s comments about Michelle Obama prove how much hypocrites Muslims in the UK are. Talk about double standards “she should have conformed to the values and the principles of the country and should have worn a scarf. It would have shown respect to the Muslim community.”
Oh yeah, so why are Muslims not conforming to the principles of our country then? Where’s the respect shown to the indigenous Brits like they demand others to show in Muslim nations or our own even?
Hijab day and the like are the kind of ploys Islamists constantly use as part of the stealth jihad they are waging every single day. Trying to push Islam into our daily lives. Thanks to leftist do-goders they are succeeding
