hijab in christianity, hinduism, judaism

Even the Hindu scriptures and Bible teach Hijab.

It is mentioned in the Rig Veda Book no. 8 Hymn no. 33 V. no.19
“When Brahma has made you a woman, you should lower your gaze and should not look up. You should put your feet together and you should not reveal what the garment and the veil conceals.”

So the Rig Veda says that the woman should wear the veil. They should lower their gaze and should not stare. It is further mentioned in Rig Veda Book no. 10 Hymn no. 85V. no.30

"Unlovely is the person is the husband who covers his thighs with the garment of his wife.“

So the Rig Veda says that wearing the clothes of the opposite sex is prohibited. It is further mentioned in the Mahavir Charitra Act 2 Page 71 that When Purshuram comes, Rama tells his wife Sita that “He is our elder, please lower your gaze, and put on the veil."

● ● ● Now lets look at the Bible...

Matthew 5:27-28
You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery'
But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart

Deuteronomy 22:5
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

Wearing clothes of opposite sex is not allowed.

I Timothy 2:9
And I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes.

Punishment for a women who does not cover her head

I Corinthians 11:5-6

11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven


The Noble Qur'an - Al-Ahzab 33:59

And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and protect their private parts and not to show off their adornments excepto nly that which is apparent (like palms of hands and face, and some scholars say face should also be covered), and to draw their veils all over chest and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their son’s, their husband’s sons, their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sisters sons or their (Muslim) women, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment.

====> Then why point fingers at Muslim women only?

Our women are queens, not only they are beautiful but also respectable. They are not like flowers on display that can be plucked. But like precious pearls concealed in their oysters which men can't get their hands on easily.
