Ok here's the thing. My village is 99% muslims and everyone knows almost everyother person. Here the young muslimahs have started wearing niqabs.... because its become fashionable these days to wear one. Anyway, funny thing is instead of reducing the rate of sinning, niqab has actually increased it and given a chance for them to get away with it also. Now Guyz have started dating niqabi sisters and taking them on motorbikes, and the people watching all think, ah he's taking his sister/mother or someone closely related to him. And a funny incident happened once. This niqabi girl was waiting at the bus stop, and a guy came in bike, kissed her over the niqab and left instantly. She didn't act at all mad. Now since she was wearing the niqab, no one knew who she was. So there was no punishment. Earlier, Guys wouldn't dare to do this sorta thing because obviously they would be identified and reported to their parents and that would get them in serious trouble. So because of niqabs, its hard to identify the girl and the guys as always get away lol. Local imams have said its better to ban the niqabs and make them wear a hijab instead because Niqab hasn't fulfilled its purpose. So is niqab good at times like this or should it be banned?
