She might be nubile and nude beneath the niqab or a withered old hag.

Few will know when Islamic women gather today in Winnipeg to demand the right to wear their form and face concealing niqab.

The event takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Carol Shields Auditorium at the Millennium Library.

It will feature the latest in Islamic fashion, including the burquini which is sure to capture more attention on the beach than the scantiest bikini.

“It’s a woman’s choice to wear a miniskirt or niqab,” says event organizer Shahina Siddiqui, president of the Islamic Social Services Association.

A niqab is a full-body garment that covers the hair and face, except for the eyes.

For Canada to be truly inclusive, people need to have a better understanding of each other, Ms. Siddiqui maintains, even if they cannot see the person with whom they are trying to communicate.

The organizers of the event are fearful that Canada and other Western countries might follow France in banning the wearing of hijabs and religious head scarves in public schools.

“People said, ‘There’s no way it’s going to happen here,’ ” Ms. Siddiqui says.

But in the last two months in this country, two women in Quebec have been ejected from class for not removing their religious head coverings. That’s too close for comfort for the Islamic Social Services Association

“Where does it end?” Ms. Siddiqui asks.

She wants Islamic women throughout Canada to voice their protest against “religious intolerance,” such as the demand that they remove their facial covering for the purpose of security.

A Role Model for the Modern Muslimah

Thousands of Muslim women are expected to join here although few will be possible to recognize.

Manitoba’s Muslim population is growing as the province increases its annual immigration targets.

In 1991, there were 2,805 Muslims in Manitoba. In 2001, there were 5,100.

Today, there are more than 7,000.

By 2015, the Muslim population is again expected to triple.

    Why do you have to mock women’s desire for modesty? Are you jealous because so many western “christians” have rejected this virtue or are you just a perv….I dont get it.

    Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers.
    Moonshadow, darling, you dont have to wear the Burqu to be modest, you can be modest wearing nothing at all. It is called attitude. We all know the burqu or nijab is used to hide black eyes, broken bones and to keep the Muslim woman down. There is not place for it in our societies.
    There is a cure for this however – stay in your own countries. You believe your countries are better and it is the home of your ancestors and no better place to practice your beliefs than in the deserts of the insane. Stay there.

    Muslims know when and before they enter our countries what we are all about. Stay away if you don’t like our ways. We love our societies, we hate your intrusion upon our way of life. Stay home. Go away. You are not needed. Take a trip to the land of Lot where your men are more comfortable.

    1, no you really cant go nude and be called modest, but I will give you 1/2 credit because it is attitude. One COULD be a harlot in a burqa…but no, one can not be modest in a string bikini…..or nude

    2.Christian women are brutalized by men too, the VAST majority of abuse headlines in my country involve non muslims.

    3. keep to my own country you say? Good advice, I think I will…however my country is AMERICA dear, so if you happen to be here you’ll just have to put up with my b-tchy american @ss walking around in a scarf. oh and by the way if you are intent on boycoting any company who employs muslims…and you’re here in my country then you better stop shoping at target, wal-mart, subway, Kmart, most cab companies, hospitals, pharmacies, mc.donalds, Long John silvers….infact the only food place that may be safe is hooters…but hey you never know…..oh and sams club and costco and….well hey you could get your cloths at abicrombie..they dont like muslims…..

  4. Moonshadow says:

    oh yeah, thanks for the mothersday greeting….Happy mothers day to you too, if your a mom. If not…happy mothersday anyway.
