AUC Must Allow Niqab

The American University in Cairo (AUC) must allow the niqab now. The hijab is a headscarf that shows the face, while the niqab shows only the eyes. AUC had banned the niqab for security reasons, but a court just ruled that that impinges on personal freedoms, so they must allow women to wear a niqab. The university is worried about security and Islamic extremism. Personally, I believe people should be allowed to wear what they want to wear.

Niqab should be allowed at any cost in egypt.It is because egytian economy is in decline and food in egypt is not so good as it use to be.
To understand it, we should understand, how Niqab originated.
Long time back prophet's wives were engaged in Shitting and Farting.Umar, second Khalifah found the smell unbearable and went to the Prophet and asked the women to be veiled so the smell get impeded.Umar also wanted a Niqab for the male but it did not happen as male farts more than Female.In old Arabic Fard meant Fart.Hence, whenever quality of food declines Muslim women should go for Niqab.
