Male (Oppression + Control) = HIJAB ?

I have made a conscious effort to not blog about any issues dealing with fundamentals of any faith, i definitely have blogged about religion but religion has been mentioned only “as a matter of fact”ly.. religion has always been associated in my posts with Architecture, Politics or anything on those lines and never as isolated religious fundamentals.

The Hijab has in the recent past been at the centre of many a dispute, mostly in countries where secular ideologies are dominant as the primary facet of governance, like Turkey and to a different degree France.

I found this very interesting video which i have attached below, why i like it is because as opposed to tackling the Hijab phenomenon purely as a religious fundamental issue it speaks of the Hijab vis a vis the socio political economic backdrop. It is only a five minute video, but speaks much more than the time it takes.
