Two eyes — indecent exposure?

Here is an interesting opinion from a Saudi Arabian mullah:

Saudi cleric favours one-eye veil 
 
The two-eyed look remains too seductive for Sheikh Habadan

A Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia has called on women to wear a full veil, or niqab, that reveals only one eye.

Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan said showing both eyes encouraged women to use eye make-up to look seductive.

The question of how much of her face a woman should cover is a controversial topic in many Muslim societies.

The niqab is more common in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, but women in much of the Muslim Middle East wear a headscarf which covers only their hair.

Sheikh Habadan, an ultra-conservative cleric who is said to have wide influence among religious Saudis, was answering questions on the Muslim satellite channel al-Majd.

 I wonder why women should try to make themselves invisible to men so as not to arouse them. The easier option would be to let women go free and castrate horny men instead. We can make a beginning with this mullah.

    Hilarious. Although not so for the Saudi women. My heart goes out to them.

    Your idea of castrating the mullah and horny men is a good one.

    I thought that once a person converts to Islam, he becomes mussalman or a person whose iman or conscience is beyond question or doubt. Then why should the women in muslim countries be subject to any restrictions. There is something amiss here. Either the so called iman thing which comes from following islam is untrue or the mullah has got it wrong. I however think both the iman thing and the mullah are a big hoax. It would be better if the mullah gives out a fatwa asking his fellow muslim brothers to cover both their eyes and walk blindfolded as this will spare the ladies their agony and at the same time achieve the result desired by the mullah.

    But you forget… the Man is superior to the Woman according to Allah. A Woman only inherits half that of her brother, needs four witnesses in her favour against a man in court, and is compared to “unclean” things like faeces, pigs, dogs and ofcourse infidels, in the invincible holy book of the Musalmans.

    Muslims also believe in the Bible theory of “creation”. God had created “Eve” in the nude and she was roaming in Birthday suit till Satan made her eat some “forbidden” fruit. Then why these guys should have some objection to the women showing even their eyes? To my knowledge it was Calipha Umer who prompted Allah to ask women to cover from head to toe in a black veil.

    During my school days, I had a lot of Muslim girls as class-mates. They were all wearing the same uniform and a “head-scarf” was the only addition. I do not think we had treated them any different from other class-mates.
