Let us know why you feel how you feel. Is the burka to be banned, is it a tool for oppression or an expression of culture?

Yes I say prohibit. People say Yes but the women themselves defend it. That is because they have been conditions all their life. A few of my reasons are
The burka is demeaning because it hides a individual and makes them look like anybody else.
Explosives can easily be carried underneath a burka. More women have been coerced into terrorist attacks of late.
The burka isolates the perosn who wears it, and this has been confirmed and also documented time and again. What do you think yourself Niti?

Its very easy to hide explosives apart from a burka is that really an argument?

Personally I think the whole thing is unfair to women and I don't think anyone would really want to wear it unless they were expected to. But no ban is going to happen I think, Theresa May already made some statement.

Ok Iv never used anonymous before but I'm going to now. I have seen in person how that Muslim women and especially young women are not happy living behind a veil. I also think that as Muslim countries enforce their customs on visitors Western countries can be more confident with their own culture.

I think it's a social and private thing. Some women may not find employment with their burqa but that is the price they pay unfortunately. But I agree on a full veil ban.

That's like saying ban the trousers, or ban the coats. It's what PEOPLE WEAR. Can you not see how stupid this discussion is?

No. Women should be empowered to decide for themselves what they wear. Banning takes that power away from women and keeps it in the hands of a mostly male hierarchy.

I think they should ban full body covering but not the burqa. The nurqa itself has existed for 100s of years and is accepted in many many countries.
