In this case, it's a complete knee jerk reaction. I don't remember that terrorist wearing a niqab and walking into the church.

I don't disagree entirely with regulating things, but it has to be specific to security and it has to be a wide ban not just on niqab, but any form of wear that could cover identifiable facial features, including sunglasses and baseball caps. I don't see the laws including hats and sunglasses, it's very much balaclavas, motorbike helmets and niqabs. People don't walk around in balaclavas unless they are bank robbers and people generally know by now to take helmets off, so really, the law is just targeting niqabis. An easy target really, women, "oppressed women" (their words not mine).

Much harder to stop people from wearing Ray-Bans and Nike caps, but these are just as serious.

In general what do you think about countries banning this dress for "security" reasons ?

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-Asia-48088834

They have to be seen to be doing something. It has a tinge of Islamophobia about it, but that was the bombers' intention in the first place. There seems to be no other reason for an attack such as this.

What challenges my worldview in terms of this attack is that I've always felt the Gulf Arab states were behind ISIS etc. But the UAE has a significant Tamil population, they can do without any animosity between Tamils and Muslims.

Last thing some lazybones Emirati needs is a Tamil spitting in their coffee before serving it.

Many female suicide bombers used the method in Iraq, long ago. They used it to surpass checkpoints, and then detonate at a mosque, or public place.

I understand that but at the end of the day most suicide bombers didn't even used that didn't they? Also there are many countries were many females wear it and no terrorist attack happen.

The exact opposite is correct, most of the suicide bombers were females at that time, and they used that method.

First about the garment. I have not seen any reliable justification based on the Qur'an that the Niqab would be a religious requirement or preference. From a human perspective it literally set up a boundary between the wearer and other people they meet in the street, hindering communication. This could of cause hinder haram interactions, but it will not stop them any more than other garments that show more of the face. I would not wear it my self on a regular basis. Of cause I can never say never, because I my self once thought I would never wear a Chador and to day I actually have a good feeling about wearing one. I do think though that the face veil is completely unnecessary. On the other hand it is a woman's right to wear it if it's her thing and she get a religious fulfillment from it. Therefor I am completely against banning it. Even in my country where the only ones wearing a Niqab, both before and after the Niqab ban, are Salafis.

I agree that there would be a security risk if a person with a face veil or a balaclava entered into a bank or a similar place where there is a risk of someone committing a crime. To the extent that it constitutes a problem, it is only if the perpetrator tries to get away and you need to identify who committed the crime. In case of suicide bombers it is rarely so. At least parts of them stay put after they have blown them selves up. With or with out Niqab it doesn't make a difference. In countries where Muslims is in a minority, like Sri Lanka and countries in Europe, terrorists would probably be more inclined to dress as a non-Muslim in order to blend in. People who are visible Muslims does get checked more thoroughly in airport security and similar places. So banning the Niqab will not stop suicide bombers.

I think the politicians who wants to ban the Niqab are really trying to buy into Islamophobic sentiments and possibly pave the way for further sanctions and animosity against Muslims.

Hm not so sure honnestly. The "white widows" in Russia didn't wear niqab if I am not wrong. 

Who mentioned Russia? I was talking about Iraq and the Middle East...

And this woman could’ve worn the veil, for all we know..

Most attack in Middle East had not been commited by niqabi women. By the way what is Shia opinion about niqab? 

And who told you that..? I’m Middle Eastern, and I tell you, that most of the female suicide bombers were covering their faces. But, that doesn’t mean that I’m against women that cover their face, it’s their own free will. I was being factual.

As for the opinion on it, jurists differ. But for me, I agree with it. I was merely being factual, as I said.

And by the way, that also doesn’t mean that I’m with the decision of prohibiting it.

What is the official ruling on Hijab/Niaqab/Chador as per the Jafari fiqh?

Which is required? 

Hijab is always wajib. The rest is your choice. In the Jafari fiqh, woman should always cover in front of men who are not her mahram. However, it is not mandatory for women to cover the face, hands and feet but some maraji’, as per precaution, ruled covering such parts as an mustahab act, especially when visiting the shrines or prominent scholars of Islam. There’s plenty of Shia sisters wearing niqab in Arabia, Bahrain, Iraq or Pakistan. Others tend to wear jilbab or chador (Iran, Iraq), instead of a simple veil for the modesty reasons. I personally like when when women wear niqab or chador instead of a simple hijab, I find it more modest.

So based on that for Sri Lanka to ban the Niqab does not violate the Jafari Fiqh or the rights of the women who follow the Jafari Fiqh.

Again, the Ski Lanka law does not violate that.

but that's simply out of personal preference. Niqab, Jilbab or Chador not required in the Jafari Fiqh, right?

Are you a Man or a Woman?

So based on this information, the law in Sri Lanka does not violate the laws of Hijab in the Jafari Fiqh. Therefore the law is a valid one.

Yeah but most of them don't even used it for attacks. As for running from battlefield this is true but with this logic we could also say that we must forbid razor because many of them espaced just by cutting their haires and beards.

But they were making themselves like women to do suicide attack but after blowing up we can’t find their bodies , they were using this filthy tactic to attack people in early days but people found out about their tactics & prevented them from doing it that at the end they used it again to run away from battlefields.

You can’t deny the obvious, unless you’re oblivious.

January 4, 2009. “A male suicide bomber dressed as a woman, killed 38 and injured 72 Shi’ite pilgrims.” (Source)

April 24, 2009. “Two female suicide bombers killed at least 66 people and wounded 125 others as people were heading towards the mosque for Friday prayers.

“The bomber was a woman wearing an abaya, a robe-like dress,” said Maj. Gen. Qassim Atta, military spokesman for Fardh al-Qanoon, an interagency domestic security body.” (Source)

And here are Iranian women wearing explosive belts (suicide vests), posing with a portrait of a so called, 'Palestinian martyr,' that blew herself up... as an act of suicide (which is forbidden), and they regard her a martyr...

The claim that covering the face is only recommended or it is not required as per our Fiqh is not accurate at all - even though this can be argued as the popular view.

The fact is, some jurists historically and even presently have decreed that it is wajib for a woman to cover her face atleast in accordance with obligatory precaution.

One famous case is that of Sayyed Al-Khoei.

it was for honorin her martyrdom  not her act also it’s not always suicide in Iran-Iraq war some Iranian fighters were doing it to save others but it derivated in wrong way by Isis & wahhabist they take it from fighters in wars to kill innocent people & make a bad image of self sacrifice in battle with killing people in non war zones but Palestinians & Israelis are at war ,anyway it’s last resort not their first option
