Excerpt from In Your Face by Natasha Bakht. It reads: "They each made the decision, after some serious thought, to wear the niqab because they feel that it brings them closer to God and is of value to them. They have the conviction to wear it even though it is a visible marker and makes them look different from most other people in Canada. They know they are not harming anyone by wearing the niqab, nor do they expect anyone else to wear it. They just want to go about their daily lives wearing what they choose to wear."
