relegion and tradition

In a country where conservativity is the most appropriate process that almost everyone goes by to live their life in peace there is a thin red line that loses the actual defnition between what is needed and where stuck up relegious is what everyone ends up seeing, there is also the hope of being a modest Muslim or becoming too insecure to even look at the person whose standing in front of you.

Let's be honest here, there is an increase number of people who are turning to relegion as form of security to redeem their lost past mistakes, which is something that is often if not mostly called for. But on the other hand, you have the other turn of the society that declines to show you any part of their part whatsoever because, according to them, it is relegiously 'banned'.

In the Holy Qur'an; it is asked that both the men and women protect themselves from Devilish eyes of other human beings apart from their muharram (i.e.: relatives or family members other than people foreign to their circle) by covering their head from their hair to their neckcollar bone plus the arms up to the hands and the body downwards upto the feet.

This does not include, however, covering the hands in gloves, or covering the eyes with a burqa3 or a total head cover to the point that no one can see your face.

Honestly, here, how do people expect their daughters to be wed if there is no face to be seen?

Or have you ever faced a woman lifting her burqa3 just to eat?

It's just ridicilous.

There is a fine line between tradition and relegion that people should not get mixed up with.
