One Eyed Veil For Muslim Women. What Are Your Thoughts?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/7651231.stm

Is this going to far or is this just the right measure?

A Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia has called on women to wear a full veil, or niqab, that reveals only one eye.

Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan said showing both eyes encouraged women to use eye make-up to look seductive.

The question of how much of her face a woman should cover is a controversial topic in many Muslim societies.

The niqab is more common in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, but women in much of the Muslim Middle East wear a headscarf which covers only their hair.

Sheikh Habadan, an ultra-conservative cleric who is said to have wide influence among religious Saudis, was answering questions on the Muslim satellite channel al-Majd.

well said. We just need to be careful with what some people come out to preach all in the name of Islam.

Muslim women are not required to cover their face and hands.

remember,

"Verily, this religion (of ours) is simple and easy to follow; whoever makes it hard will only be overwhelmed by it."

The road to hell is paved with the obsession with sex and seduction. Now the niqab ain't enough, you've got to blacken out one eye too. When anyon eis so obsessed with sexuality, there're usually issues beneath. . .

I personally think its a health and safety hazard only seeing with one eye.

Either cover whole face with that net that people can see out of or reveal face.
