Europe's Burqa Wars

Reader comment on item: The Burqa Wars

Submitted by mo (United Kingdom), Jul 12, 2009 at 06:34

I totally agree with Sarkozy, Burqa should be banned, as more and more women in this part of free world chose take it up, centuries after we emancipated them from their clothes. Also men in black suites who controls politics in western europe unanimously agrees that the muslim woman who take up burqa do so not as religious simbol but as political expression, and assertiveness to take control their bodies and their destiny. This is a very dangerous development. Untill a century back they did not have voting rights in Europe. Now they are trying to assert themselves at the corridors of power which till now is vested in the hands men in suits. You now might understand the reason and logic behind male dominated French parliament that unanimously passed law banning girls from attaining higher education and public office by defiantly spotting head scarves. That is not enough they should be banned from streets as well. We should enforce a very strict dress code for them. If they still insist on wearing a scarf let, them sit in the Kitchen. Long live French repunlic, long live Human rights and freedom expression.
