Covering up is mandated in the Qur’an, and women who don’t cover up experience harassment, violence, or death.
In Canada, a Muslim father was accused of “honor-based” violence against his daughter, for failing to wear her hijab in public. Many more examples can be called of women experiencing beating, harassment or being killed. Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch has compiled such a list, which he frequently posts on his website. Women also are frequent to protest the wearing of the hijab or burqa (such as women protesting in Iran, or a woman who took off her burqa when liberated from ISIS or women who burned their burqas when being liberated from ISIS).
Qur’an 33:59: “Prophet, enjoin your wives, your daughters, and the wives of the believers to draw their veils close round them. That is more proper so that they may be recognized and not be molested. God is ever forgiving and merciful” (NJ Dawood).
“Enjoin believing women […] to draw their veils over their bosoms and not to display their finery except to their husbands….” (Qur’an 24:31).
Sahih Al Burkahi 60:282: Narrated Safiya bint Shaiba: ‘Aisha used to say: “When (the Verse): “They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms,” was revealed, (the ladies) cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces.”

A 19-year-old man in Sweden has been charged with abuse after he beat his 14-year-old sister with a baseball bat because she refused to wear an Islamic veil.
The young man, who lives in the municipality of Karlskrona, was brought before the Blekinge District Court last week on charges of abuse and assault. He is alleged to have struck his younger sister with a baseball bat several times while yelling at her “wear a veil”, 24Blekinge reports.
The 19-year-old is said to have become angry with his sister after she returned from a shopping trip with their mother and he noticed she was not wearing an Islamic veil. When he asked her why she was not wearing a veil, the girl refused to answer. The brother then walked to his room and emerged with a baseball bat which he used to strike the 14-year-old on the head, leg, and arm.
Another member of the family, an older sister, ran into her room and called the police. When the officers arrived at the house, the young man was arrested and admitted the assault claiming that he did not hit her “very hard” but refused to give the reason for the assault.
A new report has revealed a large number of young people with foreign backgrounds in Sweden are subject to “honour culture”.
So-called “honour-culture” has become a heated topic in Sweden and as many as 240,000 young people from migrant backgrounds are said to be affected by it….
