Qu'ran does not say that women should dig in and now show anything. It says as much as the Bible does - no immodest clothing. It is often the (barbaric) culture of the people that brings such things.

I know Turkish women that are Muslim but are very liberal in attitude and clothing. In the end, it all comes down to self-respect. If you can respect yourself with having a certain attitude and clothing, it is good, whether you are Atheist, Christian or Muslim.

Yes, I've noticed it. I thought one of the points you were making is that it isn't necessary to follow a certain dress code to be a good Muslim.

I added that as long as you can respect yourself, it is good.

According to a lecturer Hittite prostitutes were the first users of headscarf... For old Arabia headscarf has very important role and it was very successful on its role. But for now it is needless and it creates only problems...

Big K.

What you have shown is the sign of the times. And there was no difference amongst anyone.

However, today under the influences of the Mullahs, the good Moslem is being portrayed as one who is wearing the kaffan!

infact...yes...there are some in here Almost all beaches are full of nudes but it is illegal being nude in public.

I think there is no legal -open to public- nude beaches in any islamic country, at least i haven't heard any in Turkey.

Turkey is, if memory serves, not an Islamic country.
