no person has the best to pass judgement on #حلا_شيحة. It was a private decision while she made up our minds to retire, and it is a private resolution now. we’re now not God. Go Away her by myself.

Boris Johnson’s burka jibe: Why do some Muslim women put on the veil?
Mekameleen TELEVISION presenter Osama Gawish, also primarily based in London, agreed the removal of the veil was a personal subject.
Then Again, he warned folks who saw it as an indication of stepping out of “the caves of darkness” or “a slap on the face of the Muslim Brotherhood” were in reality expressing “a hateful racism against all veiled ladies”.
خلع #حلا_شيحه للحجاب هو قرارها الشخصي يحاسبها عليه رب العباد ولا يملك أحد من عباده أن يحاسبها أو أن يطعن في دينها فهكذا تعلمنا
ولكن تعليقات الجانب الآخر المرحب بخلعها للحجاب وأهلا بك من كهوف الظلام واحلى قفا عالاخوان وكل هذا الهراء هو محض عنصرية بغيضة ومرفوضة ضد كل المحجبات
