in response to reader comment: Ban the Burqa

Dear, you have right to raise a finger against Islamic dressing code and their conducts. It is also your basic right as a citizen of western country to urge her government to ban on Burqa or dress code which hurts you and others. Furthermore, you have mentioned it is not only dangerously posing threat to western society but also considered it as security risk, hence they are real enemy.

Keeping in the view, should we accept version of Hindus who are expelling Christians from their country on the pretext that monks and priests are enticing and attracting innocent people by offering money and other facilities to change their religion. Should Muslims adopt same planning and urging their government to keep Christians away from their societies?

History is not kind to western countries anyway. Nuns and monks are wearing dress which may be not acceptable to the rigid Muslims. Does it mean state should take necessary action to force them to not wear such dresses? So, why you are treating women who are wearing Burqa or men who have beard with disdain and discontent. One side, westerns are claiming about champions of civilization and other side they are arrogant and rustic in their manners. Double standard policy should be avoided.
