One day we all have to stand before the Almighty and be accountable for our deeds and our verdicts given....
English translation â€œO Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters, and the believing women that they should cast their outer garments over their body (when outside home); that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molestated. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Mercifulâ€ (Quran 33:59)
â€œ And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty;that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbandâ€™s fathers, their sonsâ€¦â€ (Al-Quran 24:31)
Hijab in Christianity
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man; neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abominations unto the LORD thy God.

And I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes.

But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

There are many Indian women in the villages who wear the veils; some of the women even cover their faces.
We must be impartial in giving judgment, otherwise Allah will catch us one day...The verdict/judgment should coincide with the extent of sins committed...
