Comment 225, Sample,

Mike, it is imperative that we make a distinction between the hijab and the various face veils. As long as vision is not obscured, and women are educated to take vitamin supplements, I see nothing wrong with a Dracula cloak and a headscarf. (Goths wear worse. Hell, they even wear crosses!) Go figure. Nowt queer as folks.

True. I always get hijab and niqab mixed up. Should have consulted the Beebs.

I saw a little girl here recently being pushed around in a stroller by her parents. She had a hijab with bunny ears on it. I googled to try and find a picture but all I can find is discussion about whether or not a hijab with ears is haram because it is a representation of an animal. Does that mean you can't have chocolate easter bunnies in Islam ?
