The country's equal opportunities minister, Mara Carfagna, said the Italian government would work more closely on four draft bills on the burqa and niqab already circulating in parliamentary committees.

This week a French parliamentary committee called for women wearing the niqab — a veil with just a gap for the eyes that is worn with a long robe — to be refused access to public transport, schools, universities, post offices and hospitals.

Ms Carfagna, a former showgirl who prime minister Silvio Berlusconi made a minister in May 2008, said: “I completely agree with the French initiative, which I think will push other European countries and hence, also Italy, to enact laws on this issue.

“This is about a sacrosanct battle to defend the dignity and rights of immigrant women. A law is being studied that would ban the use of a burqa and niqab, which are not religious symbols — that's not us saying it, but the top religious authorities of the Islamic world, like the imams of Cairo and Paris.”
Do you think other countries, including Britain will soon follow suit? Or will this just be limited to France and Italy?

Do you agree with this? Note, that it seems a full ban is not on the cards, just in certain places.

In b4 muslim girl ****-storm saying that they have no problems with traditional dress.
I had thought that the reason for the veil being banned was security related - in the same way that thugs can't wear balaclavas. Obviously this minister thinks otherwise.

I don't see what the fuss is about so what if they are different. Next we will be targeting PUNKS and GOTHIC - WHO ALSO dress differently

Probably another crusade against Muslims

Well I'm not suprised. Berlusconi & Co. have no idea about modesty considering he hires a bunch of showgirls to his cabinet. The same can be said of Sarkozy with a wife that made her name posing nude. These are the last people to talk a about female dignity.

No, because we are so much better than that. Government has no right to continue its assault on people's freedoms.

I dislike it, because if the muslims cannot go to France or Italy, they'll come here - and until Labour gets voted out they'll just pile up and make a mess.

Security reasons, that's all well and good. But dignity? No one needs them to intervene. :stupid: "OMG Poor mozlim womenz are forced to wear their hijjabz, we'll put them out of their misery..." ********s.
