Face covering, please? Don't be shy!

Reader comment on item: Islamist Apparel Banned in France

Submitted by Henry Spelter Sr. (United States), Apr 13, 2011 at 08:59

The French are not the only government that legislate face-covering in public. Other Asian and African government, the Vatican too, instruct lady diplomats to cover their hair and do not wear revealing skirt and blouse in public or in official state-function. In some countries Moral-Police confront women in public if they don't' agree with their appearance. Worldwide terrorism compels Governments to protective measures, which make civilians uncomfortable. We must make a choice between comfort and security, and we are not always reasonable and unselfish enough in our judgement when we form our opinion. Still this is the best world we know, and it is up to us to improve it.
