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

Submitted by Gander (United States), Aug 2, 2007 at 17:03

Muslims wear these garments to show their contempt for non-islamic societies. It seems to me that flaunting these items of clothing is a hate crime. They wear the clothes to make me uncomfortable and keep me aware that I am unclean in their estimation, and that they intend to supplant my culture... I am a victim of muslim hate.
