Ban the Burqa

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

Submitted by Margy Pezdirtz (United States), Aug 2, 2007 at 15:28

I couldn't agree more with this entire article. The world, as a whole, is very tired of exceptions being made for Muslims, including but not limited to these articles of disguise...and that is what they are - disguises. I never see a woman in a burqa or a niqab but what I think of her as someone who is held in absolute bondage. I don't see this as a religious article but an article indicating slavery just as chains would have on a black person just a few generations ago. Stop with the nonsense. Ban the burqa and the niqab and let them breathe.
