Ban the Burqa

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas as Security Threats

Submitted by Gabrielle Crofts (Australia), Jun 15, 2008 at 02:35

I am opposed to the wearing in the west of any form of islamist clothing especially the niqab, hijab or buqa. It is an offensive form of dress to me, I am a Catholic. I find their use of such bizaare manner of dress deeply antagonistic to our established social norms of dress and conduct. I urge all western nations immediately to show courage and ban in totality any wearing of any style of hijab and buqa.

It is oppressive and it is meant to make anyone whom comes into contact with these women afraid of the visual threat they show to our way of life. They wear it in arrogat disapproval of all our western values. Ban the muslims and their bizaare clothing as a security risk. If they wish to dress like this, let them return to islamic countries, plenty of islamic lands for them to choose from, I am deeply offended at their presence in our lands.

Their entire presence is not wanted and not devised to bring any peace but to gain momentum of numbers and then take over as they have done in every country so far where they begin as minority and then rise in numbers then take over every land they go to.

They are the enemy and the only security risk in our midst.
