In the present, the whole issue of hijab and proper dress for women in Islam has garnered immense controversy. In France, women have been banned from attending classes because of it. Turkey, in the past, expelled female members of parliament for the same reason. It is an issue that pits not only Muslims against non-Muslims, but so-called "modernists" against far more religious people and traditionalists in the Islamic world. Your host, Syed Saboor, and his co-host, Sister Anisa Abd El Fattah, will concentrate more specifically on this issue of hijab and Muslim female dress, given the seriousness and controversy this issue raises.
