BBC NEWS | Saudi cleric favours one-eye veil
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.
It would be much better if Saudi men wore blindfolds and let women wear what they like. Maybe castration would cure them of their lustful thoughts?
