Time we banned face coverings?

A Judge in a court case has told a Muslim woman that she can't wear a niqaab - but only while she's giving evidence. A college in Birmingham has banned the wearing of ALL head and face coverings within the college - fine. But get ready for the inevitable appeals to the ECHR. What a joke they've turned this Nation into.

The college in Birmingham that introduced a ban on head coverings has already reversed the decision due to Muslim pressure.... and in the paper today some muslim guy who bought his kid a cheese and onion pasty that had a normal meat pasty in the package has complained that when he approached Morrisons; they offered him a bottle of champagne as compen..... he was (as usual) "Outraged" that staff did not know his cultural beliefs!!!

 

These people really do need to stop pandering to these minorities and stop letting them dictate how we in this country do things.

Apparently this woman is on trial for intimidating a witness so it is important that her face is known to public & police...if she gets sent down will her police & prison picture be of her with or without a veil .People know the British way of life & it is immigrants who should fit in with us.

The gentleman's outrage stems not from the fact that he was offered the heinous insult of a beef pasty, meat which a muslim is permitted to eat, but that the animal had not been tortured in the correct manner during slaughter.

The cruelty of halal slaughter is a ticking animal rights time bomb, methinks he'd have been better keeping his trap shut.

Thought you were a "liberal"?!!!  So, if they can do it in France, why can't we?  What primitive beliefs folk wish to hold, is fine imo, providing it's kept in the privacy of their homes or mosques/churches etc. However, when in the public space, it would seem appropriate to apply non-religious or secular values and dress codes, mainly for practical reasons. For a start, face coverings would negate all that Government investment in CCTV for example ! Security issues, interview and teaching scenarios; bank and commercial transactions etc etc; all require imo face to face contact; as communication involves body language and facial expression as well as the spoken word. And as the saying goes: "when in Rome....." etc.

simple way round it. When they appear in court no need for them to remove their head gear, just have to say "Guilty as charged, sentence is 2 years imprisonment starting now, take them away next case"

 

Any objections and the judge can just say well it was you because you were recognised by your description oh and another six months for contempt if you carry on objecting.

 

will never happen.

 

Latest one to hit the headlines,as it were, is the one about the pig gelatin in flu vaccine that was given at schools in leicester.

The wearing of the niqaab is not a mandatory requirement of Islam, but a cultural adaptation, in just the same way as forced marriage or honour killings. We don't tolerate the latter, so I see no reason to tolerate the former. Our liberal elite, who bend over backwards to accommodate anachronistic practises in the name of cultural and religious diversity, have merely made rods for our own backs.

Lt, please credit me with some intelligence, I'm well aware that surgical masks are worn in certain medical situations to prevent cross contamination, however there was a case recently where a patient refused treatment from a female dentist who was wearing a niqab with only a slit for her eyes.

NB. I believe the correct spelling is niqab and not niqaab.
