And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be ... (Sura 24:31)

And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands or fathers or husbands' fathers, or their sons or their husbands' sons, or their brothers or their brothers' sons or sisters' sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lack vigour, or children who know naught of women's nakedness. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And turn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed.

Summary
Article summary: 

Muhammad Sayyed al-Ashmawi wrote a book titled "The Reality of Ḥijāb and the Pretext of the Ḥadīth.? He wrote that the way a person dresses is a life-affair [an issue of a personal choice] and has nothing to do with religion and that wearing a higab is not a conclusive religious ordinance. Three articles in Al-Ahram commented on the ideas he expressed. One article was supportive of his articles and the other two were against them.

Summary
Article summary: 

Following the mixed public reaction to the recent statements made by the Egyptian minister of culture, Fārūq Husnī, on the Ḥijāb, the People’s Assembly’s committees for Religious Affairs and Culture and Media held an emergency meeting on Sunday to discuss the issue. In an attempt to clarify his stance on the Ḥijāb, the minister expressed his deep respect for all Egyptian women; "those who wear the Ḥijāb and those who do not," noting that his statement was twisted by media and misinterpreted as an insult to Ḥijāb-wearing women.
