What does the Koran says about veils?

The bbc has a really informative page about the Koran and what it actually says about both men and women’s dress. It does not say that women should wear something that covers their whole body except their eyes, that is one very strict interpretation.

The bbc’s page starts by saying . . .

‘The Koran, Islam’s holy book and treated as the literal word of God, tells Muslims - men and women - to dress modestly.’

I am puzzled by the interpretation put on that being that women should be completely covered. I am even more puzzled that women go along with that interpretation.

The bible contains much more specific rules, but few Christians keep them rigidly.
