Islamic men believe that women should wear the burqa as a sign of respect and loyalty to the family but where did they get this idea? Moore says many people would think it is Islamic religion but you can’t really say that and be completely accurate. The reason being is because of these facts Moore states he says that is you read the Quran ( the Muslim Bible) it doesn’t gives that as one of the laws that women specifically have to follow. Rather it says that both men and women should follow a dress code but does in fact say that women have to cover their chest, lengthen their garments to conceal their body as respect for themselves and for both men and women should wear the most important garment of all which is righteousness and modest conduct. Nowhere does it mention or require women to wear such garments as a burqa I feel that Quran just wants women in Muslim community to carry themselves in a respectable manner in society. With the information I got from the passage is that the only reason women have to wear the burqa is because men want to feel as if they have power and control over the women in their society I also feel that women should stand up for each other and make a change to stop this in their culture.
