Putin: Nothing Good About Wearing Hijabs to School
Interfax ^ | 4/25/13

Posted on 04/25/2013 6:56:22 AM PDT by marshmallow

Moscow, April 25, Interfax - The wearing of hijabs to school is not traditional even in ethnic regions of Russia, President Vladimir Putin said, answering a question in the Direct Line on Thursday.

"There is nothing good about it. True, there are peculiarities in ethnic republics but what you speak about is not an ethnic peculiarity but a demonstration of the known attitude to religion," Putin said.

"There has never been such a tradition in our country, in Islamic regions," he said.

The wearing of hijabs is prohibited by law in certain Islamic countries," Putin said.

"I believe that our country can and should restore school uniforms. That is already being done and I hope the regions will not forget this. I hope they will introduce these uniforms in the most active way," the president said.

No self-destroying PC in Russia. Good for them.

The world is truly upside down when I find myself usually agreeing with the Russian President and hardly ever with the American President.

It’s pretty pathetic when Mr KGB does more than the Muslim-in-Chief!

Yet again, Russia’s leadership makes more sense than America’s leadership. We truly live in an upside-down world.

I’m liking Putin a lot more than the Obamadork.

Error, error.

I do not like the Obamadork at all.

He is worthless scum, the ultimate slimeball, the t*rd in the toilet that is rejected by the other, higher quality t*rds.

Flies cluster to him for good reason.

Totally aside from the hijab/no hijab issue, school uniforms are great!

It’s still the norm in most of Asia, right through university. As is banning of all forms of jewelry for kids at school. Saves a huge amount of hassle, wasted energy dealing with worries over peer pressure over clothes, and also money.

I think these woman are being fooled if they think a hijab makes them look more modest. If this post on the subject from another blog can be believed, it is a religious statement.

and i can say since i have worn it, no man talks to me with disrespect and tehy dont approach me unless they ahve a good reason, so they dont coem chat me up or wolf whistle as they used to. so i get respect, and there is now barrier between us. it also protection from sexual harrasment and i havnt experinced any of that since i wore my hijab. before that i used to at work but now nothing. it works, it protects me, and it brings me closer to allah, also a constent remidner of who i am, a muslimah, and a remeinder of allah, so in way a form of worship to allah the almighty.

What’s the deal? In Russia they’re bringing back Christianity and denouncing Islam, while in America Christianity is attacked and Islam glorified.

Plenty of hijabis living in America but the upside is that Western culture is spoiling them to the point of causing real problems with their husbands and fathers.

Hi jabs are useful in setting up hooks to the body, often followed by an uppercut.

And in the meantime, your 12 year old sister has been taken away and will marry a 50 year old “master”. She will be beaten periodically to keep her respectful.

She is a beautiful young woman, and on a certain level, I can understand why she wants to avoid men leering at her.

It’s a sad state of affairs when some women feel the need to wear this type of clothing to avoid unwanted advances. There was a time when gentlemen protected women from such things.

I just wish her attire didn’t come with all of the baggage, so to speak; she is basically subjugating herself to the men in her life.

Oh Lord, I sound so old. LOL.

“The wearing of hijabs is prohibited by law in certain Islamic countries,” Putin said. “

Yeah, that pretty much takes care of keeping those pesky females from getting educated.

If a woman has an AK on her head, it’s going to be noticed, even if there’s a scarf over it. Also if she has a cat on her head ... but that’s a different situation entirely.

Yes a different tail/tale ... what is that whole body sheet the mooselimbs force their women into? I thought that was an hijab(?).

The full-body covering is an abaya or burka, depending on the country. A hijab covers just the hair and neck, while a niqab also covers the face.
