Ban The Burqa
At long last a Muslim speaks out. I agree with him, do you?
I’ve also found an interview Taj Hargay had with David Frost three years ago. He was of a similar opinion then although the article writer alleges he was not an imam. Does that matter?
It’s quite concerning how the radical feminist lobbies are progressing in the UK. Back in the 60s I supported the calls for equality between the sexes but I had no idea then that, a few decades later, men would become so invisible in society.
We are government mainly by men, but women now dominate society. Earlier today I read that 47% of babies today are born out of wedlock. There is a noticeable absence of fathers in many children’s lives.
I digress. Recently the European Court of Human Rights upheld France’s burqa ban, accepting Paris’s argument that it encouraged citizens to ‘live together’. The case was brought by an unnamed 24 year old French citizen of Pakistani origin, who wears both the burqa, covering her entire head and body, and the niqab, leaving only her eyes uncovered.
She was represented by solicitors from Birmingham. Why? Are there no human rights lawyers in France?
Belgium introduced a similar ban in 2011.
What are we afraid of? Ban the burqa. It’s everyone’s right to interact with someone by looking them in the face and any legislation should also include the necessity for the removal of face coverings, scarves, veils, turbans, helmets etc for security checks.
