I have already written about the modus operandi of Islamic banks, so I will not get repetitive about how they work. Taking advantage of a person’s situation is a heinous sin and a crime, and Islamic banks do that to perfection. What I want to talk about here is the new dress code imposed on the female staff at the Dubai bank.
This is wrong for a number of reasons. To begin with, people are forced to look Islamic. This means that the first thing that has been done by these so called Islamic banks is blatant deception. A woman who may wear a miniskirt and a skimpy top will now be sitting in an Islamic bank covered from head to toe. What is the reason for this? To deceive customers. Oh look, we are so Islamic!
If they are so concerned about religiousness, why don’t they hire women who wear the abaya habitually? No, they want to hire sexy women and then they will force them to wear the abaya.
Some women who don’t wear an abaya themselves have agreed that forcing female staff to wear an abaya is a correct decision. Talk about hypocrisy!
It is all about money. Do Islamic banks care about people? If they do, why do they charge so much more than conventional banks? This so called dress code is just another propaganda to enhance business.
Also, if there is a dress code for female staff, why isn’t there a dress code for males? How about, any male who works in an Islamic bank must have a fist length beard, and must wear a white kurta?
If these banks are so Islamic, why have they hired non-Muslim females? And why are they also forced to wear the abaya?
What’s coming up next? Dress code for customers?
