Summary: 

An Oxford-based Muslim cleric has called for Britain to ban the burqa, arguing that the wearing of a face veil is not Islamic but the product of a misogynistic culture. He further argues: Since the burqa and niqab are ancient habits and not mentioned in the Koran, it is, therefore, pre-Islamic, not Koranic and ipso facto un-Muslim.” “The niqab is a tradition and has nothing to do with Islam.” Taj Hargey is being less than honest. Here is what the Quran really says about the burqa and niqab: (Quran 24:31) And tell the believing women to reduce of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.
