The tarha or headscarf is part of a Muslim woman's attire, much in the same way that nuns dress up in a manner to maintain their modesty. But why cannot some people who claim to be progressive and by implication, intelligent, just accept this as a matter of fact without resorting to such ridiculous measures of banning women (who ascribe to this dress code) from schools, from places of work and most recently, even from parliament? In a western society, is women's liberation to mean that women should 'dress to bare' or women should be free to choose their manner of dressing according to their convictions?
