Where's the necessity to wear niqabs and burqas in U.K. or Philadelphia, PA?

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas - The Veiled Threat Continues

Niqabs and burqas were the 'fashion statements' for Arabian women of the 7th century, because their men were & still are very fastidious that their women be fair and not sunburnt.

The second reason for niqabs and burqas was to protect the eyes from sand-storms in the Arabian Desert and places that Muslims denuded after usurping land from the natives' lands in order to build their shanty structures for their conscripts. Their men had their head-towels to cover their face. while they put their women under ghostly looking niqabs & burqas.

The third reason was to hide the identity of beautiful native women whom they abducted, & covered them with niqabs & burqas, so that their native male relatives would not find them or be abducted by other covetous Muslim men.

It is definitely silly to continue with this 7th - modern day custom, when they live in the West, unless & until they denude the forests, etc. to leave the place desolate.
