Time to ban the niquab in public?

Recommended Posts

Seems, for once, the ECHR has shown common sense by upholding the French ban on wearing face coverings in public; perhaps now the UK can safely follow suit?

I doubt they will though Obs.

Going back to the ban in France and some other countries I guess they could all just wear motorbike helmets with tinted visors instead now though :wink:

It's not the burqa specifically which is banned in France, the Act of Parliament over there is called the "Act prohibiting concealment of the face in public space" and applies to all citizens, including men and non-Muslims, who may not cover their face in public except where specifically provided by law (such as motor-bike riders and safety workers) and during established occasional events (such as some carnivals).

maybe they should ban beards too because they are a form of hiding in public..... and ban them for women too just to be equal ! :)

:lol:  Well, they certainly need to get a grip, as the latest airport security scare shows; the paranoia will have things grinding to a halt. One would have thought that there is enough technology now available to identify folk (assuming a bare face), and assuming they had a data base.

In the name of political correctness, they don't like to profile though which causes many of the delays.... The powers that be would prefer to stop old white ladies going to Benidorm than some arab or muslim looking guy going to the USA....

There is a Muslim guy in Oxford, an Imam I think, who is pushing for a ban on all face coverings in public. These include ski masks, back to front balaclava as well as yasmaks and the like.

 

I hope he gets his campaign of the ground and through Parliament.

 

He will need a campaign manager with experience. Whats you know who doing these day ??? :P
