Muslim Girl, wearing Hijab
Since hundreds of
years ago, it is being pretended by the mainstream media and secular governors
that Islamic peaceful rules for daily life are means to restrict the personal
freedoms and violate the privacy of people.
Undoubtedly, there are thousands of credulous people around the world who
simply believe these lies and accept what they see and read without thinking
about it or estimating its validity.
The main problem is not the hostile advertisements of those who want to blame a
"soft crusade" against Islam. That is because their duty is to
provide an altered view of this religion and they are being paid for.
The complexity emerges when ignoramus people who rely on their
"hearings" rather than their "witness" and their
"intellect", get used to conclude about Islam and its teachings based
on what they watch and hear from an American TV, American commentator during a
4 or 5 minutes American TV program.

So the main anxiety of 21st century is the dissolving esteem of
"thinking" among the "masses of people", the value of study
and learning being ignored and replaced by the "oral knowledge" which
is totally baseless.
For instance, when people believe what they watch in a so-called documentary
Fitna the movie without knowing anything about the personality and quiddity of
Islam and even without reading the Holy Quran for one time, we can just express
unfortunately that illiteracy and nescience is spreading through the world in
the era which is called the era of knowledge and communication.
But does the increasing influence of mass media and growing science assist the
different layers of people to confront with unawareness and ignorance? Or it
just helps to waste the human energy and our daily time in addition to costing
other damages to our knowledge, perceptions and intelligence?
The black propaganda comes to its highest level in the issue of Islamic
Hijab and Islamic dressing codes which the western media effort to change it
into a source of controversy and it has so many reasons.
The clearest reason to mention about the radices of western media
counterfeiting the reality of Islamic Hijab and fabricate their own facts about
it is the historical willingness of western powers to blot the cultural and
religious identity of Muslim people.

They know Hijab is
what protects the originality and nobility of Muslim females and that is why
the west tries to tamper the image of Hijab in mass media so that the
westernized trends will be increased among Muslim nations and pessimistic
senses will be hiked.
In the other words, western powers are attempting to fade out the Hijab as a
symbol of Islamic culture and civilization, settling their nihilistic monarchy
through the Muslim nations by declaiming anti-Islamic slogans
As you may know, Hijab is not a religious rule exclusive to Islam and it was
common between Christianity, Jew and Zoroastrianism but they have forgotten it
and today those are just Muslims who respect this historical custom.

Hijab gives freedom to women because it lifts the
public attentions from women's body to her moral skills, abilities and
scientific values and allows her to participate in her own social activities
far from the impure looks of men around her.
Hijab neither limits the personal freedoms of Muslim woman nor makes her
unbeautiful, but just helps her to remain well respected as a dignified
Islam orders the
Muslim women to protect their personality and social respect by wearing the Islamic
Hijab which is better for them, but it does not mean that women are forbidden
to play games, contribute in social and political activities.
By offering the solution of Hijab to Muslim women, Islam shows that it is the
main defender of women rights because it wants that women could freely
participate in any desired activity without having any nervousness and
You can find in the news that Muslim women specially the Iranian ones are among
the most skilful female athletes, female scientists, university professors and
Therefore, the western media and their followers must open their eyes and
accept the truth. Perhaps they broadcast lies in their programs and news, but
they are clearly observing that who is being oppressed. The Muslim women or the
western women who even have not the right of property!
