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

Submitted by Arlinda (United States), Sep 20, 2009 at 13:31

Our dear leader and president has said:

"A women should be free to wear a berqua." If our dear leader finds the berqua such a symbol of freedom, then I suggest he run out and purchase such rags for the chattal who occupies his bed and for his daughters who, in my neighborhood of Jackson Heights are already enshrouded by the symbols of submission by the time they are five years old. This seems to be the right age for Islam to start frying women's brains.

The value of a berqua to an Islamic husband and/or father is that he has the life long freedom from ever having to spend even a farthing on the women in his life ... no clothes, no toiletries, no cosmetics, no haircuts, no talk, no nothing. His only responsibility is to himself and his imam.
