in response to reader comment: Another viewpoint for Ban on Burqa and the Niqab

it seems purposeless to ban hijab and burqa etc. as far as the security matters are concerned.as you know that now- a-days thumb and finger prints are more acceptable for security purposes than the face, and these are more reliable too. and also that to stop the misuse of a certain thing,it is not good to stop that thing at all, especially when it matters to someone's religious teachings. everyone should be free to lead his/her life according to teachings of his/her religion.
