  1. i think although all thinks and aspects and opinions are fine but these are all our self generated and everybody has their own opinion as per their thoughts about abaya. but i think i have my own but being muslim and being a muslim state we should follow and think like a muslim, we should do all things as islam says even if we are not doing but we should try to do as we are here to follow and obey islam and instruction of god. and to eleborat and clear these things we can also look behind from where abaya make necessary for women. we should look back to our history when muslims were ruling over the world and what was the reasons behind all these success. Due to whom and due to which reason? abaya make compulsory for muslim women. we can act like liberals but we are not. these are very serious concerns and i think it should be take as much as more serious to govt for the whole country and if we cant do because the barriers of this reign then make some other ways like even if women cant wear burqa then no issue but can wear proper dress with scarf. today shamless dresses are the reasons of these incidents and this is the point where we should do proper work.
