(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Western countries are intimidated by Hijab (veil) inasmuch as it is the symbol of Anti-hegemony,” said the deputy of the Head of the Judiciary, Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi.
Speaking in a Seminar on Hijab and chastity held in Tehran, Raeisi underscored,” Hijab and chastity is the right of family and is not just related to an individual and a woman.”
“Although Hijab is a cover for women but it is actually the sign of piety in the society,” he said.
“Hijab speaks volume about abiding by Islamic rules and standing against the arrogant world," Raeisi went on.
“Fortunetly, recent movements and uprisings in the region reveal this fact that no longer Muslim nations take western women as their models,” he spotlighted
“The issue of Hijab does not just a matter of covering, it is a symbol against arrogance and hegemony,” the Islamci scholar underlined.
The Islamic scholars underscored that western countries do their best to destroy the value of Hijab in Muslim womens' eyes, so it is the duty of each Muslim to deal with this issue seriously.
