^the burqa is not a muslim symbol and comparing it to a cross is naive at best. My comment had zero to do with religion, which I wasn't talking about at all and which I also won't do, because this is not the place. Actually Ayu did not use those women in burqa as a symbol for Islam either. Also the Arabic world has a lot to offer when it comes to culture, but forcing women by law (emphasis on law) to cover their bodies and often even their faces by putting on a burqa is not culture, but just cruel and man made. Like Yumsushi already pointed out, it was simple orientalism. The arrangements of Duty and BRILLANT had some "orient sounds" in them and the women in burqa were used as some kind of exotic add on for the show, while equating "Arabic women" = burqa. Regarding the fight women in the Arabic world are fighting not only at the moment but actually since around the 70's and what those women are risking (rape, prison, death), using women in burqa who are playing dress up as "Arabic women" as a means for entertainment is stupid at best and ignorant at worst.

She's right in that there is nothing in the Quran that says women are to wear it. It is a cultural thing not a religious requirement. Women are brainwashed into thinking it's a religious requirement by overly zealous male muslim scholars andjealous and controlling family members. Many Muslims women see it in a very negative light and consider it equivalent to living in the middle ages.
In the western world we are told that is is appropriate and acceptable because saying otherwise is "racist" . Doesn't change that is is a cultural way of dress and not a requirement in islam (ie it's common in rural egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia etc)
