You really must be annoyed you never got a green card Debanjee! Your bias against the US is so consuming, that probably you really do believe the reason you live in a 3rd world country is the US, Great Britain and Israel.

It is a common trait amongst failures who look for someone to blame for why they are a failure.

I believe you are a prime example of this.

The reason the French ban the burka, is the same reason that Nazi uniforms are banned in Germany.

The burka represents oppression to most western societies. Just the same way as the SS uniforms of WW2 to Jews. You not being from a developed country do not have the understanding of what oppression of women is, because being a Muslim male from the 3rd world you are probably an oppressor of women.

Now we hear a lot of Muslim propaganda how the Burka represents wonderful things to women. That is great in a Muslim country, in the west the Burka is a symbol of oppression of women, and the French have the right to decide what is allowed in public and what isn't. There are laws stopping nudists from walking down the street, as some people find it offensive. The Burka is offensive to many people in France, societies have the right to impose standards on how people behave in public. If Muslim women want to wear Burkas they can go to countries that allow it, or like nudists in France they can practice being nude at home, Muslim women can wear their Burkas at home.

In Saudi Arabia there are laws prohibiting Muslim women from marrying non Muslims, and stopping women from driving. The practice of female genital mutilation. Under age marriages, forced marriages Why no outrage against these Muslim practices??

These outrages are represented by women wearing the Burka, and it is a symbol that the west does not want, just like the Nazi Flag. The French are saying no to the oppression of women by banning the burka.
