Cancelling a woman’s face doesn’t correspond to the real Islam

Sumaya Abdel Qader, an Italian writer and activist of Palestinian origins, defines the cancellation from a video of the face of an Italian woman (Philomene Kabouree) kidnapped in Mauritania by members of al-Qaida, a radical political act whose aim is to roil the West.
Referring to the fact, she condemns the obligation for women to wear the niqab but also to take off the veil.

With her activism, she encourages Muslim women to integrate into the Italian society and to promote their own emancipation. The Quran, in her perspective, doesn’t preach women’s submission or the covering of their face: rather, it recognizes their equality and full rights.
