Saudi cleric favours one-eye veil
BBC ^ | 3 Oct 2008 | BBC

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. The question of how much of her face a woman should cover is a controversial topic in many Muslim societies. The niqab is more common in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, but women in much of the Muslim Middle East wear a headscarf which covers only their hair. Sheikh Habadan, an ultra-conservative cleric who is said to have wide influence among religious.

Can she put eye makeup on the eye that doesn't show? If she happens to show both eyes, does Allah want that she have her eye poked out with a stick? Is this what happened to the one-eyed mullah?
