Burqa is immoral

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas as Security Threats

Submitted by Rajeev (United States), Sep 7, 2010 at 00:14

Dear Dr Pipes,

I have no doubt that many Muslim women wear Hijab and Burqa by choice out of respect of their culture and religion. But I think that wearing Burqa/Nikab/Hijab is immoral as an institutionalized religious practice. Today in my city it was hot and I chose to walk on the shaded side of the street. At the same time, I saw a muslim couple crossing my path. The guy was walking like a cool dude without his head covered. His poor wife was wrapped in a hijab.

I believe that as an institutionalized religious practice, advising girls and women to wear Hijab/Nikab/Burqa is immoral.
