You are right Freelancer. It is wrong to impose any morals on any one. A very simple answer to your question is that "why women are not allowed to wear burqu or hijab in the West"

The Western society has separated religion from the state hundreds of years ago; any symbol of religion in public places is not accepted. That's why Muslims in Germany had their demand answered immediately when they asked to remove the crosses from public schools. and that's why the woman I mentioned got what she wanted when she demanded to cancel the Christmas celebration in public schools, and that's why Ontario will cancel all religion arbitrations including Christianity, Judaism because recently Muslims demanded to add Sharia law in Canada, when their request got refused because of the contradiction between Shari law and the freedom of women and children, Muslims then demanded that all religious arbitration be cancelled.

So the summary to this discussion is that no religious signs are allowed in any public places in western societies including hijab and burque. Muslims should comply with the Western society and yes a muslim boy should take the swimming lesson with girls because that's comply with the school rules. The same way I accepted that the Christmas Carols to be cancelled from schools, all catholics in Germany accepted the government decision by taking out crosses, muslims have to accept to go with the rules. i.e. No burqu no hijab etc.

Salam, peace
