Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: Universal muslim uniform of Burqa

Submitted by Mohammad, CPA (United States), Jan 7, 2009 at 01:24

Wearing Burqa is a Modest dress for many Muslim women in Muslim Society but it is not Universal for Muslim women.

This kind of Burqa is not very important for women working in the Banks, Hospitals or other Private/ Public Offices. This is a real picture of Muslim society. Mostly illiterate & less developed women wear Burqa like Afghan women or other Muslim women. However, there are many Smart & well educated working women wear Apron type dress with face & both Hands Open, without any covering at all. This kind of dresses are also used by Chistian Nuns. This kind of Dress/ Burqa is welcome in every society in the World. Look to the Dress wore by former Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto and Bangladesh Prime Minister Khalida Zia. They are the Real examples of Apron/ Burqa by such dignified International Muslim women Leaders.
