Why only Nikab?

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas as Security Threats

Submitted by noor (India), May 13, 2008 at 07:51

This is the discussion among intellectuals and free minded people, that is why i am writing here. Dears, if a single person commits a crime can we curse the whole system. If a wrong doer commits theft, murder or rape then should we blame the burqa, and the weapon . No not at all.

If so first ban all those weapons by which a murderer commits murder,destroys countries, leave mothers wailing, children orphan and what not.If then burqa or nikab is a weapon to do all worst things then only one can ban it.For that matter we have to ban all those weapons right from WMD(weapons of mass destruction) up to the lowest made available weapon as a knife, rope and like wise.

And if this cannot be done then why to ban only Burqa.And you will say that a knife, a rope or a weapon protects you from enemies and these are for day to day use, then my answer is burqa or nikab also protects you from enemies, rapists, bad eyes, scorching heat, chilly cold weather and most of all it protects your skin and keeps you fresh as a chocolate in a wrapper. Just try it and always check out the positives and don't cling on negatives....
