Sister Ardo responds to “Blog Niqaab”
Sister Ardo from Ottawa (whom you may remember contributed to my coverage of the Jack Straw niqaab affair of 2006) has responded to sister Aaminah’s article on observing niqaab while interacting with others over the internet, as a reminder of Islamic etiqutte. She talks about why she took up the niqaab and the enticements to remove it. (As an aside, sister Aaminah’s article was not the first time I have heard the argument about niqaab as a physical reminder about Islamic behaviour; I wonder how that works for us men, though.)
