“To make one exception means to make them all.” - Clothing such as the Muslim headscarf, hijab, burqa... is a political cultural statement and informs adherence and respect for the ideological constructs attached to it which hold tragic consequences for women.
“To make one exception means to make them all.” The same Islamic Construct of Women informs both outcomes as it must - Own it.

“An Egyptian film star has been charged with public obscenity after she attended the Cairo Film Festival wearing a sheer dress that revealed her legs, according to state media.”
“Excuse me, Islam to me is the most feminist religion, right."?
Muslim women do the facts bare comparison? "Excuse me, Islam to me is the most feminist religion, right. We got equal rights well before the Europeans." compared to Cairo 2013 "94.9% of Egyptians are Sunni Muslim" the “most dangerous megacity in the world for women” in a 2017".
"Cairo was ranked as the most dangerous megacity for women from a U.N. list of 19 cities. The Egyptian capital, with an estimated population in 2016 of 19 million, fared worst when it came to harmful cultural practices for women such as female genital mutilation and forced marriage and was named the third worst city when respondents were asked if women were at risk of sexual harassment and violence."

Iran Won’t Outlaw Marriage of Under-13 Girls, as Islamic Countries Fare Worst in Annual Gender Survey, By Patrick Goodenough, CNSNEWS.com, December 25, 2018
But ever since outrage over Ayu’s case erupted on social media in Malaysia — after Mr. Che Abdul Karim’s second wife posted pictures on Facebook of the marriage ceremony with a sarcastic “happy wedding” message to him — critics say the new government, under the guise of religious freedom, has done too little to protect minors.”
11 and Married: Malaysia Spars Over Child Brides, NYT, By Hannah Beech, July 29, 2018
If a behaviour occurs in the present it is of the present not only centuries ago it has been occurring for centuries since Mohamad’s own actions in obtaining underage girls as he did from a community he had slaughtered. This behaviour including the slaughter of Other by Muslims has occurred right in front of us in the Middle East on a scale which cannot be excused as an outlier belief behaviour. Humanity either gets rid of the Islam/Muslim codex development process which will always contain such behaviour justification and authorisation or the practice will continue in the present that is humanities choice otherwise the false platitude of “This is a practice from many centuries ago” continues along with the inevitable infamy.
"In the past 24 hours, the photos have gone viral. Young women standing tall and proud on the streets of Iran with their hair uncovered, defiantly waving their discarded headscarves on the end of sticks and in direct violation of the country's strict laws that force women to cover their hair.
"They are risking their liberty, they are also exposing themselves to torture and other ill treatment at the hands of police and other paramilitary forces in Iran that enforce compulsory veiling against women," Raha Bahraini, Amnesty international's researcher on Iran, who has been closely following the spread of the powerful protest images, said"
Iranian women remove their veils in defiant viral protest, ABC, Sophie McNeill, 31/1/2018
So importing more Iranians with the Muslim biology/culture ideology as the German socialist Minister (Katarina Barley) wants to do will reduce attacks on women? So importing more Afghans with the same Muslim biology/culture ideology having women kicked to death as infidels in the Afghan streets as the German socialist Minister (Katarina Barley) wants to do will reduce attacks on women?
If a Muslim biology/culture ideology informs behavior in one space how is it the exact same Muslim biology/culture ideology will not inform it in another even though they already are?

In Afghanistan, a Struggle to Leave No Woman or Child Behind, The Diplomat, By Tadamichi Yamamoto, December 04, 2017

"As one Arab scholar observed, Muslim patriarchy considers female sexuality as extremely powerful but subversive to the social order (Mernissi, 1975). Women are taught from childhood that their sexuality is the inalienable and permanent property of the Hamula (extended family) rather than their own (Al-Krenawi & Graham, 1998). “Sexual purity and lineage honor are seen as inseparable” (Haj, 1992, p. 764, cited in Al-Krenawi & Graham, 2003), and a woman’s sexual identity is of concern to all. Awoman who is perceived to have strayed from the strict norms of sexual conduct, even if she is a victim of sexual abuse as a child, may be ostracized and even murdered to preserve family honor (Shalhoub-Kevorkian, 1999). Accordingly, women’s sexual integrity is maintained by ubiquitous forms of family and community surveillance and control."
"Indonesia's official Commission on Violence against Women reported that, as of August 2016, the number of discriminatory national and local regulations targeting women had risen to 422, from 389 at the end of 2015. They include local laws compelling women and girls to don the hijab, or headscarf, in schools, government offices, and public spaces. While many of these laws require traditional Sunni Muslim garb both for women and men, research by Human Rights Watch indicates they disproportionately target women.
A local bylaw implemented in August in Sumedang, West Java, forbids anyone with an “eye-catching appearance” from going out alone at night. The municipal government justified the regulation on the basis that it would help discourage sexual activity.
