    I dont support a full ban but there should be restrictions in certain places if need be.

    Thats a bit of a dangerous statement. Although i agree anyone should have the right to wear what they want. Killing infidels is certainly the business of other people.

    We should do as the French have suggested, ban it in schools, hospitals, government buildings and also public transport. They can wear it in the street if they like.

    Of course not!!!:mad: :mad:

    Everyone has rights, we shud be able to wear what we lyk!!!
    It is part of Muslims faith and everyone has a right to believe in what they want.

    If you ban the veil why don't the government start banning eg turbans etc..

    No. People can wear whatever the hell they want imo unless there is a serious safety reason. I don't think anyone is going to pretend that wearing a burka whilst fighting fires, or trying to communicate with someone with serious learning difficulties is a good idea.

    In a normal everyday situation though, I for one am not going to **** myself if I see a woman in a veil walking down the street. I can tell the difference between a muslim woman and a ninja, and I am not that retarded that I get scared of someone wearing clothing from a different culture to me. I do not see why anyone has to justify the wearing of a piece of clothing, "religion" doesn't somehow make it ok, the fact that someone has decided to wear it and they feel comfortable in it is what makes it ok. The rest of us just have to deal with it [unless it's a t-shirt saying "**** your mum" or whatever].

    There is one argument that women are forced to wear a veil by their husbands/parents et al but I don't see how forcing them not to wear it is any better. I heard on the news that in France the ban would be enforced by women found wearing the veil being escorted home by the police - how is that any different from the Taliban, or the moral police in Iran [minus the executions of course].

    I don't know about it being "demeaning to women" :rolleyes: but it's certainly a valid security concern - In the same way a balaclava or motorcycle helmet can be, as has already been pointed out. Freedom of speech/religion/whatever can suck it if it compromises security.

    People in Britain will be stopped by police when wearing a balaclava or anything covering the face, so why should it be any different for Muslims?

    Also it doesn't take much for someone to don a veil and the rest of the Muslim gear before they are completely hidden from CCTV and free to go around raping children. It is a MAJOR security issue.

    Besides, it's not like the veil is forced upon them in Islam so there is no reason to go against a ban.

    Religion is stupid anyway so who gives a ****.

    And are you trying to say the Taliban and the moral police in Iran are bad or wrong?

    Why stop there? I humbly propose that we mandate that all citizens wear "Victory Clothing" so as to prevent anyone from burdening society with their inappropriate attire!

    [QUOTE=MaceyThe]Not really a fan of banning stuff, and don't know how enforceable a ban would be, but I appreciate what France is doing -
    It is a statement of intent......they are putting down a marker. France is for the French. Assimilate or leave.[/QUOTE

    So people living in France cant be Muslim now?

    This is a free country; people may do what they want unless it hurts others. It should be banned only from the workplace.

    No, not at all! Just because a very small minority of individuals are perhaps forced by their husband or relatives into wearing a veil, does not mean the choice should be taken away from all women... doesn't that therefore make us as bad as the husbands ect? Women should be allowed to wear what they like, banning clothing does not help.

    As much as I hate them, there's something quite fascistic about telling people they can't wear a harmless clothing item on their head.

    Personally, I like women who don't show everything to everyone. It gives them an element of mystery.

    But covering up completely...
