Lahore: Dr Rukhsana Jabeen, general secretary JI women wing, said in a press statement that Hijab is the fundamental right of a Muslim woman who wants to obey the teachings of Islam. She said that Hijab serves as a protective shield and promotes a modest culture. Dr Jabeen said that capitalistic mindset forces women to be immodest and women are objectified as sell-able commodities.
She said that Islamic teachings promote women education and Hijab is not a hurdle in progress of women. Dr Jabeen said that if a Muslim woman wants to observe Hijab and Pardah, she should not face any discrimination because of that.
She said that it is deplorable that some so called Muslims are also against Hijab because of their apologetic behavior and western mindset. Dr Jabeen urged human rights organizations to raise their voice and stop Hijab based discrimination against Muslim women
