Let me ask you a simple question . Say you and your son aged 7 years old were walking on the pavement and all of a sudden a speeding car mounts the pavement hits you and your son, but unfortunately your son gets killed by this car which you saw was driven by a niqab wearing woman and did not stop, and it becomes a hit and run case, And when the police catch up with her after a day or so , she denied that she was the driver of the car at that time , it could be her mother who has left the country that evening, How could you identify the driver if she was wearing niqab? So niqab and burqa MUST be banned .You can not identify a person who is wearing niqab by looking at their hands in the public if you do not know the person. or can you? Here we are talking about the face of a person as an identity. Every one should be free to lead her/his life according to teaching of her/his religion. What about the Christians, Catholics, jews ,Hindus ,Sikhs ,Buddhists who live in Muslims countries, have they got the freedom to lead life according to teaching of their religion?
