Why are women's rights ignored when it comes to Muslim women?

Recently at my university I noticed more and more Muslim women wearing the face mask called the niqab.
Why are women's rights ignored when it comes to Muslim women?

Now I've done my research into Islam, I find the religion quite fascinating actually and I found out that not only is it not a part of Islam but that it's practised by extremists to subjugate women.

Here's an Islamic rights activist that can elaborate on it



Here is an article written by her

I brought up the issue on one of my university's Facebook pages and I was removed for calling them ninja masks and oppresive to women. I was called a racist and a bigot even though these people had no idea what the niqab was, thinking that I was refering to all head coverings.

When I provided evidence, they ignored it and kept yelling that it's a woman's choice even though I told them that only Daesh, the Taliban and Saudi Arabia have women dressing like this.




Why do people say that it's their culture when they have no idea what they're talking about?

Over private chat I have spoken with a Muslim who claimed that niqabs are not oppressive and are merely a way to prevent men from lusting over women.

I see that as offensive to men since you degrade all of us to be horny perverted rapists with no self control. Also there's nothing wrong with being interested in women, it makes us heterosexual men who we are. Without a face, the woman has no identity and is not desirable to anyone.
