Tradition of burqa is just ceremonial

Reader comment on item: Niqab Security Outrages at Airports

Submitted by Ash (United States), Aug 6, 2010 at 14:00

Today I witnessed a surprising incident which just changed my opinion about this burqa tradition which is supposed to be violeting security laws around the globe.I am on a tour of India and this evening I saw a muslim couple in a restaurant.The lady was entirely burqa-clad resembling some Afghan or Iraqi woman.This was really interesting for me as I was keen to know how she will eat without removing her mask. well she just removed her mask to eat. This was as normal as everything else there.When I discussed my friend about this,he just laughed and said,"These guys are really funny".Though this may seem just a simple incident but it compels us to think something.If these guys can violate shari'a rules for eating in a public place then why not in security checking in Toronto or Boston.The reality is that burqa is just ceremonial as you can find myriad no of muslim girls working with male staff.All they want to do,is to violet western rules so that they can show how much they respect shari'a and not our penal codes.
