Reader comment on item: Niqab Security Outrages at Airports

Submitted by zahirah shakir (United Kingdom), Aug 4, 2010 at 06:03

Actually, in the Arab world and Pakistan, travelers in niqabs do go to a separate room where their faces are compared with their passports by female officers, and they may be searched also. No reason why that could not be done in the rest of the world also.
