You're scared of Islamic extremists - join the club.
You think banning the burqa is gonna make them easier to catch or emancipate Muslim women? - get the fuck out.
If you ban the burqa - then logic dictates you do the following..........
- Ban the open display and wearing of crucifixes in public and on churches
- Ban Jews wearing Kippah (that'd go down well)
- Ban Mormons from going door to door (that one might prove popular tho)
- Ban religious billboards
- Ban religious events of any sort where they occurr in public
- Ban Hare Krishnas dancing at malls
- Ban religious paraphernalia of any kind
My Muslim cousins and I do not agree on some things - but freedom to wear our traditional garb - whether you agree with it or not - is a vital practice to our religion.
So get your hands off it and get your governments and local city councils back to other issues that are worth your time like - Oh I don't know - feeding and housing the poor and homeless maybe?
Burqa Ban........................... WTF????
Shalom & Asalam melekham
