She walks down the street covered up from head to toe. Her many layers and loose clothing have you very confused. It’s warm outside. Most people are wearing shorts and t-shirts. Yet, you find this particular woman, going against the norm and sticking out from the rest. In America, where one is “free” to do, say, or even wear anything, why would a free woman choose to dress this way? It’s a logical question.

The usage of the word Hijab nowadays tends to immediately conjure up imagery on Islamic clothing obligations for women, the jilbab, niqab, abaya, headscarf etc. and the uphill battle many Muslim women face in embellishing themselves Islamically. What, I feel, seems to be far less considered in the public discourse today is the male factor: How males should conduct themselves and the Shariah protocol relating to their dressing.
Yet another ‘ban the burqa’ debate on tv featuring 2 muslim women. It is good to see the moderator takes a fairly neutral stance, and doesnt favour one side over the other. Once again, we see an uncovered woman, Mona Eltahawy, with a distorted sense of reality try to force her personal opinions on the whole world, and it is great to see that she is completely dominated by a woman wearing a niqab. Hebah Ahmed not only dispells all of her false arguements, but also raises some important points that clearly make her the winner of this ‘ban the burqa’ debate.
Do you know the “Brazuca” is the official world cup ball of FIFA 2014 which has been produced by second largest Muslim country Pakistan. Forward Sports in Sialkot, Pakistan is the manufacturer of the Brazuca. They were awarded the contract by Adidas at short notice after the original manufacturer in China failed to meet the demand.
This is not the first time when Pakistan is making footballs for world cup, ‘The Albert’ Official Olympic London 2012 was also made in Sialkot Pakistan. Not only this, but if we look at the history, we will found that the football of World cup 1982 “Tango” was also made in Pakistan. Sialkot has a long history of manufacturing top-class balls.
On the Brazuca production line, women in headscarves, some with their faces veiled, work briskly.
Ninety percent of those working on the Brazuca were women.
Adidas unveiled the Brazuca at a launch event on 3 December 2013, two days ahead of the traditional unveiling of the World Cup match ball at the draw of the group stages of the World Cup Final. The launch event took place in Rio de Janeiro at Parque Lage and featured a 3D light projection, which revealed the Brazuca to everyone in attendance.
