You're wrong, Wardah. There are dress codes in Western countries. You can't walk around downtown naked. You can't enter a bank wearing a motorcycle helmet. You can't wear shorts in an expensive restaurant. A teacher can't teach her class wearing a bikini. You can't wear a t-shirt walking into a CEO's conference room. A pilot can't fly a plane wearing jeans. And so forth.

And because we do have dress codes, we don't want women wearing face veils in our countries. And we expect respect for our values and our dress codes. A Western female journalist in Iran does wear a head scarf, because that's the dress code there.

A turban doesn't hide the face.

I'm not a supporter of dress code laws. I would appreciate it if Muslim women don't wear face veils voluntarily and just cover their hair if they want to. Doing this they would show respect for our countries.
