Question:


Why does Islam degrade women by keeping them behind the veil?


Answer:

status of women in Islam is often the target of attacks in the secular

of the ‘subjugation’ of women under Islamic law. Before we analyze the
reasoning behind the religiously mandated ‘hijaab’, let us first study
the status of women in societies before the advent of Islam.
1. In the past women were degraded and used as objects of lust


The
following examples from history amply illustrate the fact that the
status of women in earlier civilizations was very low to the extent that
they were denied basic human dignity:
1. Babylonian Civilization:

  • "On the
    contrary it has actually degraded them to the status of concubines,
    mistresses and society butterflies who are mere tools in the hands of
    pleasure seekers and sex marketeers, hidden behind the colourful screen
    of ‘art’ and ‘culture’. "

  • At least western women have a choice as to how they will dress, if they want to work, drive a car, vote, not have children, or be married off for a barrel or crude oil and a goat. This article is total BS but then so is religion in general. The high rate of rape in the US isn't simply because women are allowed to wear mini skirts. It's much more complicated than that. Besides I doubt a 3rd wold country such as Afghanistan closely monitors criminal statistics and openly shares them with the world More..

    • @Pixelated You have been greatly fooled by the "Glittering"...everything that glitters is not gold!...she was never assassinated coz of women rights, she was infact assassinated on political grounds through coordination with the US intelligence & her political heirs, currently occupying high ranks in government to enjoy the looting of country's reserves!

  • There's a degree of truth - and a lot of BS - in this.

    The real and simple reason women are covered is because their beauty is powerful. Grown men, sane and sensible, experienced and wise, turn into dribbling idiots over a pretty young girl, a young girl far too thoughtless and young to have such power. Hence it is controlled.
