Muslim dresses

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

Submitted by Janusz Kowalik (United States), Aug 2, 2007 at 13:13

This article by Mr Pipes is very timely and should be widely circulated in the western press and media. In addition to his excellent arguments for banning burqa I wish to point out that the Muslim women dress reflects their opression and lower social status compared to males . Modesty can be shown by much less restricting clothes.

I wish to congratulate Mr Pipes for his courage and good sense in tackling this essntial issue.

Dr. Janusz Kowalik
