This information will be churning the stomach of the oppressors.

A month after ex-foreign secretary Jack Straw suggested that Muslim women who wear veils over their face can make community relations harder, what do people within the Muslim community in the UK think of his remarks?

Jack Straw’s comments on veils have been good news for the owner of The Hijab Centre in the MP’s constituency of Blackburn.

Nadeem Siddiqui tells me he is selling more veils than he did before his local MP made his controversial remarks.

Mr Siddiqui is the largest seller of veils in the area.

“I used to sell two or three a week but now I am selling five to six. They are mainly being bought by young, British-born Muslim women,” he said.

It is probably not the impact that Mr Straw intended when he wrote in his local newspapers that he felt uncomfortable when dealing face to face with veiled women. read more
