    I agree with you but to some extent! I mean, ignoring people in general is obviously rude regardless of their background, and like someone has pointed out before, isn't that the same as talking on the phone, you can't see their facial expression too!
    This has already been dismissed as the use of the phone is part of the agreed method of communication between the two parties but again I ask this simple question does a muslim women who wears the burka also wear it when answering the phone in her own home.

    And quick question, if you ever worked as a cashier and a women wearing a niqab came up to you to ask you something, would you ignore her??
    Yes or as I said I would turn my back to her so she couldn't see my face.

    Once again, why the hell would that concern you????
    Because sexual equality is a concern for most citizens in this country as is fighting to continually improve it.

    Or do you think muslims should be able to opt out of sexual and race equality legislation?

    If we want to ask for a female (even though we still can at the moment) then that's our choice, cos that would make us feel a lot more comfortable than having a man to check us. It has nothing to do with you, I mean would it affect you, ofc not!
    Yes and it should also be the choice of the company to refuse this given they will also have to comply with equality legislation unless that is you don't think muslims should be part of this legislation

    Would you ask for a different officer because one is too ugly and creeped you out?

    Why do you distrust men so? Are men perverts and rapists until proven innocent?

    Also wonder if they think it would be OK to ask for a non Muslim because some people may find Muslims a little creepy

    So if a white supremacist/racist in the UK refused to talk to a black or Asian police officer or whoever, that'd be perfectly fine with you, right? If s/he demanded to talk a white person only, that'd be their choice, right, and you wouldn't object. Only talking to white people makes them more comfortable and it has nothing to do with you. Why the hell would it concern you, after all? That's totally OK with you, I assume?

    You could always keep a balaclava under the counter for interactions with niqabis. Or a bag with eye holes.

    Let me get this straight. You think it's 'creepy' and indeed 'obviously' creepy for a male police officer to talk to you? Do you apply that to every situation? All male police officers are 'creepy' if they talk to women (or Muslim women)?

    If someone here said that talking to a Muslim police officer is 'creepy', would you accept that?

    True but I do think turning your back gives a very specific message. You can of course continue speaking to them but by not allowing them to see your face puts both of you on a equal terms

    You're just talking NONSENSE! :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: But once again, it has NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU ..

    You honestly should learn to mind your OWN business cos you seem to struggle with that and not interfere with other people's needs when it HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU!

    It honestly feels useless debating with you, it's like I'm talking to a toddler who just doesn't seem to understand no matter what !! :rolleyes:

    Oh dear. So you can't answer such a simple question such as 'does a burka wearer have to cover her face in her own home when on the phone'

    Sexual and race equality is my business as it concerns all citizens of this country

    But as we can see you are losing the argument so sadly revert to form

    I'll say no more as you are more than capable of demonstrating the issues we are going to have with some of your community on your own.

    And if someone finds it 'creepy' to be checked by a Muslim official, and demands someone else, that's totally fine with you, of course. After all, it's none of your business and has nothing to do with you (shall I put that all in capitals and in red the way you did?)

    You aren't privileged because you are from another religion. You can't expect a female officer all the time, the majority of police are male. Legally if they require you to take it off, then you must.

    I just said the same thing in a previous post!

    (Original post by FluffyCherry)
    Well, if that was part of the law, and she had no other choice, then yes!It would be more preferable if a lady would confirm her identity instead, but if that option isn't available, then yes she'll have to take it off, but once again, wearing a niqab is not obligatory in Islam, so taking it off is permissible in Islam!
