Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas as Impediments to Health
in response to reader comment: Sri Lanka to ban burkhas and Islamic schools

Submitted by A very concerned reader, Mar 15, 2021 at 13:20

Dear Prashant,

I also posted something yesterday about this new on the "Ban the burqas, allow the burkini" Dr Pipes' article, as we were debating the issue in there too.

I definitely would love to see that more countries reach this conclusion and implement this challenging and life-changing measure in more countries before more lives are taken. Sri Lanka did it, but after years of violence and terrorism. They're also closing 1,000 Islamic schools, Prashant! This measures will make a difference and for sure, not only will they be tackling terrorism but also women will be liberated from this torturing and extreme garment. The stop of the Islamic spread by shutting the Islamic schools constitutes as well a great advance to keep the country safe.

I wish European countries were able to copy Sri Lanka without fearing the reactions. I want to think it's not too late, regardless of the reactions of those who defend diversity without noticing the dangers of the Islamic attire which indeed are countless. But the fear of their counterattack is sadly very high.

Submitting....
