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

Submitted by Venkata prashant. (India), Apr 18, 2010 at 12:34

Well, few people say that wearing a burqa is a form of repression.for a certain extent it is true.But it is also true that women are being objectified in many ways in the western society. An example would be the potrayal of women in magazines. And objectification of women is also a form repression(psychological to be precise). So it is better "few western people" to look themselves in the mirror before they target others.( You may think i'm saying this because i am a muslim.Well for your information I am a Hindu.)
