Need your help to see clear through confusion
after watching a tv programme, last night, I decided to write and ask for your precious help.
The tv piece was about Islam minorities in Italy, immigrants, and the fear of terrorism. The women condition was also approached.
I must say, beyond all expectations, the programme was very well done, delicate and correct in words, it was clear that the intention was to descourage all sorts of prejudice and easily shaped stereotypes. The thing was quite surprising because public tv does not always offer good service and information, thus altering truth or creating false images which can even alter social balance. This was fortunately not the case.
Yet, I have a doubt so now, I come to you with a question which has long been crossing my mind: please, I would like to know more about the Burqa. What was its origin, do women really choose or like to wear it? Is it related to religion or is it just a male imposition? How do you feel about it in your own experience? And what about the Hijab?
The information I have are confiusing and contradictory, so now that I have a chance, I would like to be taugth more straight from your voice.
