He......he.... semua alasan dikemukakan oleh Gaby meski tidak relevant.
 
Lihatlah Astri Ivo, Inneke, Sandrina Malakiano, Evi Tamala semakin lebih 
dihormati daripada ketika belum berbusana muslimah.
 
Lihatlah perilaku Artis yang dulu berbusana Muslimah sekarang sudah lepas lagi, 
perilakunya semakin norak dan suka merokok, bicara teriak-teriak........
 
bandingkan betapa jauh bedanya...........
 
Salam,

BAGI YG pernah makan angin di Daulat Al Khaleej, perempuan Arab terutama yg 
terpelajar dan muda mendambakan dapat berpakaian yg sopan tapi praktis. Bagi yg 
kaya mereka memakai the latest fashion dari Italy dan Perancis di bawah nijab 
mereka.

Setiap kali aku naik pesawat keluar dari salah satu negara2 ini begitu lepas 
landas dan boleh berjalan, perempuan2 muda langsung 'make a beeline' ke toilet 
untuk melepas nijab mereka dan kemudian muncul kembali 'transformed' berbusana 
elok, sopan dan praktis.

Tapi apa yg sedang terjadi di negara2 kere spt Indonesia, Bangladesh dan 
Pakistan - kaum perempuan dipaksa untuk menutupi aurat (ten of them) krn sang 
nabi mendekritkannya 1,400 taon lalu. Mereka ingin menunjukkan bhw mereka lebih 
Arab/Islam dari orang2 Arab sendiri dan semakin membatasi opportunity kerja. 
Sebagian besar perempuan Islam di Indonesia termasuk kelas kere, tidak 
berpendidikan dan tidak mempunyai marketable skills kecuali kerja di 
sawah/kebun dan di pabrik.

Keharusan memakai jilbab selain gerah, tidak praktis, lebih mahal dari busana 
lain juga downright dangerous di pabrik dan samasekali tidak pantas di 
sawah/kebun. Tapi apa yg bisa dikatakan, mereka ini setidaknya muhrimnya ingin 
menterpurukkan kaum Muslimah dan membuatnya lebih gerah an menderita.
