Dr Pipes, here we agree once again..

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

Submitted by Harrak (Canada), Aug 2, 2007 at 20:21

Ninja "I call it" is a threat to security. I heard stories in Muslim countries where criminals use this to cover their face. Many abductions occured this way as far I heard from people. It is obvious that this should be banned and even criminalized. So Yes for Hijab, No for Burqah and Niqab. You got it right Dr Pipes.

The face is the least one must show to have a normal interaction with other people in society.
