This was my first reaction upon reading that;
My second reaction was of course... irritated. I am a Malaysian woman and I am a Muslim and I definitely not one who wants to cover up all Muslim women. So much for "mengharumkan nama negara".
This is so cliche of politcal parties, Puteri UMNO is no exception. They don't settle problems, they meddle with them. They do things not because it is the right thing to do, but rather they do things that get them as many votes. I mean, people despise UMNO because of corruption, but why bother fight corruption when there's another way to get the votes - one that can kills two birds with one stone. I mean, think about it. One, it's tougher to fight corruption, it's best to try the method of out-Islaming PAS, tap into their Islamic vote market. Islam is so in trend right now. How difficult is that? All women got to do to show they are Islamic is simple, just urge every woman to wear head cover. After all, society today is more concern about what is on a womans head, rather than what goes on in her her head.
Two, their husbands air travel a lot. I'm sure if they have wives who look like.....well, let's just say the air stewardess look much appealing than the Mrs. even after two rounds of tapai. I mean, if you look like these, how can you not feel insecure?
Can you see the erm.... weight.... of the problem?
would you blame your hubby to feast his eyes on more interesting sight? I mean, why bother loosing the extra pounds when you have the power to make the enemy cover their their crowning glory right? Power isn't power until you can abuse it...
But come to think of it, even if air stewardesses uses head cover, they will still look more appealing than some of those insecure ladies..
Well, they say head cover...they did not specify the extent of coverage...
I think, perhaps, instead of telling the air stewardesses to cover their heads, Puteri UMNO should work for gender equality amongst steward and stewardesses. From the intelligence they've shown lately, I can safely predict that this may be the headlines in the future:
PUTERI UMNO WANTS MALE STEWARDESSES TO WEAR SKIRTS, TO ENSURE GENDER EQUALITY
P.S Ooooo...I wonder if they are going to tell these hunks to cover their erm..heads...too...the ones beneath those kilts :-D
