Not that I support the forced wearing of the hijab of course

Not that the young lady would be immoral in any manner.

But it has to be said that the bird could quite possibly initiate thoughts of immorality in some.

Myself though I would regard this story as a casting session without the couch to be honest.

  1. The way I was brought up, “modesty” was “not drawing attention to yourself”. Going around dressing in a manner that makes you stick out like a sore thumb is, by definition, the complete opposite of modesty.

  2. There’s an article in last week’s Economist about how Iran has become the world leader in nose plastic surgery:

    The phenomenon is perhaps surprising in a country far more conservative than plastic surgery hotspots such as America, Brazil and South Korea. But there is a good reason why Iranians have a penchant for the alteration. “For ladies who have to cover themselves apart from the face, it is the only thing they can show,” says Mr Shirazi. A boob job will only get you so far if you have to spend most of the day shrouded in a manteau, the mackintosh-like outer garment almost all Iranian women wear.

    ..

    Despite one state TV channel last year introducing a ban on cosmetically altered actors, Iran’s rulers see little wrong with surgery. Perhaps this is because Islam’s holy texts have nothing at all to say on the subject.

    Seems like Mohammad wasn’t all that prescient and Allah didn’t warn him about this western decadence.

  3. “Perhaps this is because Islam’s holy texts have nothing at all to say on the subject.”

    Islam’s holy texts also have nothing at to say on the subject of hiding half the population.
