Keighley Islamic group rallies to the defence of Muslim women
by Miran Rahman
A Keighley Islamic group has rallied to the defence of Muslim women wishing to wear the full face veil.
Keighley Muslim Association said this type of clothing – also known as a niqab – is a personal choice and worthy of respect.
The subject has resurfaced following a decision by a judge to allow a Muslim woman in London to wear a face veil in court, so long as she removed it while giving evidence.
