On the other hand, she is a staunch defender of Islam, combating those who claim it is a religion of violence and misogyny.
Naseer gets interviewed from time to time about the niqab, and since she is so against the idea of veiling women, she must explain how the practice has become so widespread in Islam. After all, she notes correctly, women in Mohammed's time did not cover their faces.
So what is the source of the veil? Jews!
Recently, Cairo University banned the use of niqab for women, and Naseer praised the decision. She said that the veil is not Islamic at all, but came from Jewish tribes in the Arabian peninsula.
Moreover, she said that the great rabbi Maimonides ruled that Jewish women should never show their faces, even when they go into their own backyards.
This is not the first time that Naseer blamed Jews for the niqab.
The professor of religion is speaking nonsense; Maimonides said no such thing.
But when Muslims don't like something, it is easiest to get their point across when they associate the object of their hate with Judaism.
