Yes you are right about the customs of our countries, but i think you have forgotten about the democracy, wearing Burqa is not only our custom but our belief that after hiding our bodies with burqa we can prevent many rapes and vulgar things, besides being nude walking on streets women loses their self respect and other see them nude and thinks vulgar and rape them because on first place only those ladies are ready to get raped because they are already coming nude from their houses, this is not custom but this is vulgarity and you think that this is custom, custom dosn't means that you live half or full naked in front of your brothers and sisters, this shows your society in the name of custom, there are so many Non Muslims lives in Muslims countries but we never says that all Non Muslims should live accordingly to our custom, because what we believe that who ever do sins will have to deserve himself only.
