Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: A favorite oxymoron

Well he is right "A woman should be free to wear a burqa". A burqa doesnt limit a woman's possibilities and rights. The holy Quran never forbids a woman to work or study. A muslim woman has every right to work or go to school/college. In fact it is her right (that's right HER RIGHT) to gain knowledge. Just because a woman is covering her head it doesnt mean that her brain is "fryed" .

And just because she wears a burqa it doesnt mean that her husband/ father doesnt has to spent money on clothes, cosmetics or haircut. A muslim woman has the right to speak out whenever she wants to.

There is no compulsion in Islam.
