Egyptian Hijab

This one goes out to all those people I keep talking to who tell me that Islam is horrible and forces women to cover up. Two anchorwomen in Egypt want to wear the hijab on TV. So what's the big deal? Well, the TV station (state-owned) won't let them. They went to civil court and state court and both courts said they could wear a veil on TV, but the TV station still won't let them do it.

Dear Mr. Gator:-)

I am pleased that you are offering those of us who are most confused about Islam.

I will use your site as a reference manual for Islamic culture.

Thank you. I hope I can live up to that now!
