in response to reader comment: Burqa as a security threat

Still it is million dollar question whether Western states are secular or Christians. Apparently they do not proclaim to be Christian states but all festivals and festive are celebrated and holidays are declared on such days.

On the contrary, they are poking in their nose in the affairs of other religion and social activities. Christians are allowed in the nook and corner of the world but Muslims do not react on their dress code. Rather they are permitted to carry on religious activities and need by security is also provided to them to organize their functions. Dress code is important for Muslims. Sole object of Burqa is to show modesty and avoid to not displaying body parts which attract opposite sex.

Islam has been maligned and presented in distorted way. Islam is religion of nature and for the betterment of human beings. In modern society women have become object of sensuality and show piece. Price of her modesty has been fixed by advertisement companies and film industries. It is extreme way of degradation and chastity of women. Reaching at the height of civilization, still we have not learnt to respect women, which are mother, daughter, sister and wife.

Burqa may be a have become a social issue. But ask your genius political leaders who used Islam and Jihad as a tool to defeat communism.
