Description
Scholars argue that the 'Purdah' was initially designed to protect women from being harassed, but later these practices became a way to justify efforts to subjugate women and limit their mobility and freedom. Others argue that these practices were always in place as local custom, but were later adopted by religious rhetoric to control female behaviour. It is seen as a practice that allows women to be judged by their inner beauty rather than physical beauty [donning veils and hijab to move in public space]
