Leaving Islam




32 Why a nun can be covered from head to toe and she's respected for devoting herself to God, but when a Muslimah does that, she's considered  "oppressed"?


Because a nun CHOOSES to wear those habits. No one forces her to become a nun. That is her choice. But a Muslim woman in Islamic countries does not have that choice. She is obligated to wear the veil.  

It is like the fakirs of India who apply to themselves lots of tortures. They CHOOSE to do that because they believe in this way they become enlightened. But if you inflict the same tortures on someone who is not willing, you are abusing him.
