Veils are a bad idea

The Egyptian blogger Wael Abbas published a link from Youtube of Saudi youth sexually harrassing two girls wearing the full veil (the niqab). It appears from the audio that one of the girls is Egyptian and the other is Sudanese. They were probably going home after finishing work.

Isn't the veil supposed to protect women by making them appear sexless???

So how come that in Saudi Arabia (the cradle of Islam) the veil isn't having that effect?? What do they have to wear then, full body armour??

The veil has failed miserably I think

Watch that video

I rest my case.



  • This is really disgusting.

  • What a bunch of filthy dirt-bags!!!

    Them just running up behind the girls and grabbing/groping them is just ridiculous. Wish I was there...with a baseball bat!

  • well they would 've harrased'em anyway whether they were wearing veil,headscarf or just normal clothes.....these guys were raised in a wrong way..they were given the wrong ideas about women and respecting them...still veil is a bad idea but because a lot of different reasons which I don have time right now to explain..

  • It is like those lucky bags. You have no idea what is inside so that makes you even more interested.

  • This looks like what stupid people say:the veil makes them sexier,they always have a reason for harrasing veiled or not,It's all about civilization people,if they just learn to treat women as human beings there's would be no need for the veil or niqab.
