CHoice to wear Hijab

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

you cant simply state that it should be forbidden in public places based on these instances of terrorism that is probably not commited by all of the other Muslims that CHOOSE to wear the burqa/niqab. It is not as black and white as you put it. Wearing it can be a choice and though it is not directly stated what type of head covering should be worn, it is implied and people all over muslim countries wear it based on their version making them feel closer to God and such. Thus, you have no right over anyone to say that they cannot wear it in public places. Just as you have the RIGHT AND FREEDOM TO WEAR CLOTHING...
