“As a Deaf individual, covering of the face is highly disrespectful in our culture. And no, not just the United States of America, but internationally. Deaf Muslim children and women highly reject such facial coverings.
It's of utmost importance for our culture to 'read' facial expressions and the lip movements tell us a lot about the individual's emotions.
It is perfectly fine if they cover their head and their body... But not the face and hands.”
