Amusing Article on the Burqa

A Mystery Wrapped in a Riddle Wrapped in a Burqa

This article made me giggle. Shame about some of the comments though, “Poor covered Muslim women, they don’t even know how oppressed they are, we need to save them from themselves.”

Give me strength.

    Hi there, I just wanted to write a comment to thank you for linking to my article, and more importantly for revealing that it made you giggle. To think that a woman who actually wears a burqa (though I just watched that Reza Aslan vid on the SMH and now I realise I should be using the word niqab, but I digress), to think that I was able to make you giggle could possibly be the best feedback on a piece of my writing that I’ve ever received. Heartwarming, to say the least. And thank you for the blog, I’ve had a bit of a read through, most enlightening. Keep up the good work. Insert awkward geeky smiley face here. 🙂
