Excerpt from In Your Face by Natasha Bakht. It reads: "Yet because they do wear the niqab, many people make assumptions about them. Some people think that they are brainwashed into wearing it and that they can’t think for themselves. Others believe that the niqab represents violence and hatefulness and that those who wear it wish not to engage with others in society. While they are aware that in some parts of the world the state forces women to wear the niqab, as Ayesha says, “What does this have to do with me and my choices?” Because the niqab is associated with racialized communities, some people even tell niqab-wearing women to “go back home!”"
