A look at the controversial niqab and similar veils, and why they are so concerning.



The veil is not simply a piece of ethnic attire. It is an integral part of the Muslim Brotherhood's project to mould Muslim-majority countries, and immigrant Muslim communities, according to its interpretation of Islam. This is a supremacist, misogynist interpretation which views Muslims as morally superior to non-Muslims and women as a "problem" that has to be contained and prevented from corrupting the morals of men.
