Reader comment on item: British Opinion Surveys from an Islamist Hell
in response to reader comment: British Opinion Survey of Muslims in UK

Submitted by Bill (United Kingdom), Oct 14, 2006 at 15:53

I am at a loss as to some current events.

here are some reasons why.... Please feel free to quote the true Koran to me.

A member of my government suggested that "islamic females", please note the quotes... should remove thier headwear when HE has a personal interview/meeting with them. He expressed that this was only because he found it much easier to see sincerity in peoples facial exprecience/attitudes. - I can believe this...

Next - a local, "islamic female", was forbidden from sending a parcel through our local postal service because she refuse to remove her headware, Now this I can understand, given National security etc.

What I can't understand is this. My Government has agreed to set aside a certain amount of money for schools dedicated to true Islamic studies, on the understandinding that non Islamics are not excludeded. Fine we might believe.... But the newest of these schools has now declared that even non Islamics most wear a Hijab, Headware. Now tell me brothers/sisters, are we being fair?

A modern "Islamic"

Submitting....
