My take on the burqa/niqab

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

Submitted by Kamel Krazie (Canada), Aug 5, 2007 at 08:34

This fetish to dress with modesty has gone ‘Skanky' with closets of burqas and niqabs ! Talk about ‘clothes horses (camels)' draped in the whole nine yards of fundamentalism. Skanky in that they are tasteless, degrading, debasing and pathologically anti-social and have no socially redemable value. These ‘not welcome mats', scream do not attempt to interact with me, I will not allow you to tarnish by spiritual purity. They remain rude walking billboards of abject self-righteousness,crude neon signs blatantly prostituting one's creed.
