How did the oppressive niqab end up in the BBC’s ‘wardrobe of rebellion?
So the BBC would be drawing attention to the horrors of ISIS imprisoning female sex slaves in its black-crow, sensory-deprivation costume? And, obviously, it couldn’t fail to give due credit to the recent protests in Iran where courageous women have been imprisoned for removing veils and demanding the right to go uncovered? No. Instead, the BBC decided to feature a handful of women in Denmark who have challenged that country’s law against wearing the full-face veil in public. It cheered, “moving around the streets, they risk being reported to the police at any time.”
