Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too

Submitted by Twana Blevins (United States), Aug 2, 2007 at 10:16

I agree about the burqas. Also I remember seeing on a CNN special by Shara Shall (sp?) back in 2001 - a lady in Afghanistan was having a hard time breathing so she lifted her burqa so she could breathe and she was beaten by a Taliban man. Not only is it a security risk, but it is medically dangerous for some women.
