Beyond the veil....

So, here it is....a short comment on Barkha Dutt's column on the veil. While I agree with her that modernity is confusing business, I really think we must stop debating on women's clothes. Does anyone debate on men's clothes? Does anyone really care? Then, why the hell are we wasting time and energy commenting on the veil, or the absence of it? If a woman feels comfortable with the veil, so be it. Leave her in peace. What is the big deal?
