This text for question no 1 to 6


Muslims Headscarf
The right to freedom of religion is enshrined in the UN charter and considered by many to
be a basic human right. Some religions require special diet, others prayer at specific times. Why
should a religious mode of dress receive as much protection as these other aspects of religious
freedom?
Many Muslim women view the veil as a means to protect their modesty and privacy.Just as
we would not force any women to be seen in public in her underwear if she did not feel
comfortable doing so, why should a woman be forced to show her hair if she does not want to?
Modesty is a personal judgement call; some are comfortable in the smallest bikini while others
prefer a lot more clothing. No one but the woman herself should make that decision.
Muslim women are not the only ones to feel coerced over their mode of dress. Most people
are affected by the societal norms surrounding them. Fashion trends could be seen in exactly the
same light as religious traditions.
Banning head coverings is only likely to provoke a more extreme reaction among highly
religious communities. Framing laws to ban only Islamic forms of dress could be considered an
attack on one religion. Feeling under attack could cause the Islamic community to close off into
itself. They could set up religious schools where their children can dress as they want them to
and not mix with children from other faiths. These effects could never be good for the integration
of society and would further the influence of extremists. Internationally, the perceived attack on
Islamic values would infl ame wider Muslim opinion, feed conspiracy theories and add to the
dangerous feeling that there is a clash of civilisations.
Intolerant schools make up problems as an excuse for not allowing Muslims freedom of
religious expression. In a multicultural society, students should be aware of the different religious
practise and cultural traditions of their classmates, and be taught to understand and respect
these. Without such respect, Muslims and other groups with distinctive dress, such as Orthodox
Jews and Sikhs, will be driven out of mainstream education and forced to educate their children
eparately, which will really create divisions and alienation.
Based on the above discussion, the government should not Muslims headscarf as a part of
school or office uniforms,.
