For a decade or more, Western society has been made to take a serious look at what is happening to their children. With g-strings for the under 10s  and pre-teen heels, it is frightening to think what the eventual outcome of this could be.But in the Arab world, a more traditional culture has been seeking to protect young girls and keep kids as kids. For most Muslims, girls up until adolescence have no need to don the veil - something designed partly to shield them from prying eyes.However, a new set of Muslim preachers and groups are looking to veil younger and younger girls , leaving the question: what do kids as young as 8 or 9 have to “conceal”?Some say these Sheikhs are just sex-obsessed or perhaps reacting to the kind of Western culture that puts young girls on stage in revealing outfits . But many in the region are worried about what this trend means for their young.After all, by veiling 8 or 9-year-olds surely it will alert them to a sense of sexuality far beyond their years? And it’s not just the veil that’s causing controversy, with so-called “child marriages” hitting the headlines  and cases of abuse that hint at girls being treated as adults, the region’s young girls are in crisis.Here we take a look at some of places where the new found clerics have had their say, putting children in the hijab well before puberty ever hits. Should pre-teen girls be wearing the veil? Is it a sign of their devotion to God or just a way of controlling them? Tell us what you think below.
