An interesting response on Hijab by a Nobel Laureate

This is a really good response. I got this from a friend and I thought I should share:

Yemeni Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Tawakkul Karman.
When asked about her Hijab by journalists and how it is not proportionate with her level of intellect and education, she replied as follows: Man in the early times was almost naked. And as his intellect evolved, he started wearing cloths. What I am today and what I am wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved and is not regressive. Its the removal of cloths again this is regressive back to ancient times.

Alhumdulillah! What a beautiful response.
