what are rasheed's reasons for making mariam wear a burqa and what do they tell us about his ideas about his role as a husband and man and his expectations for mariam

When Rasheed returns home and compliments her daal, Mariam feels proud. Then, Rasheed tells Mariam that "a woman's face is her husband's business only" and gives her a burqa to wear, which horrifies Mariam. The common thread in all of this is that Rasheed is a misogynist jerk who does not care about Mariam. He hides his religion to inflict his abuse on Miriam.
