I was watching a video about it and wanted to know what you guys thought. I believe that people should be able to dress the way they want to dress.

If it's not affecting you, then why not?

It can affect things
If someone walked in a bank covered up, then puls a gun and takes money, Some person tries to be a Hero and gets shot. You have a hard time finding them.

If someone doesn't cover their face its easier to identify them.
And No someone cant do it with those robber masks , cause Lets walk through city dressed like robbers with black masks, No one is gonna stop u's or call the police before we reach the bank

Truee, good points. But how many niqabis have you heard of that have actually done that? If that was a serious problem then yes I agree with you. But all they do is walk around minding their own business. If you're going to say 'if someone did this or that' then everything might aswell be banned, right?

Isn't part of British culture to be tolerant and accepting of every way of life?

it is, but part of british culture is also about not hiding your identity in public, doing so makes people often feel threatened.

give me an example of one time, a lady wearing the niqab doing anything 'threatening' on British soil?

I could say people half-dressed on a 'hot' day are a security risk as well......

disregarding the victoria secret article for a second, you can't blame the niqab. they were all men using the niqab as a way to hide their identity - the niqab was just convenient for them- if we ban the niqab they'll just use a substitute.

with regards to the victoria secret article, I can't argue against, assuming the attacker was muslim.

nonetheless, banning the niqab will just demonstrate how inter-twined this country's definition of the freedom of religion actually is.

freedom of religion without infringing on other people's rights. the niqab is not even required in islam. it is a choice to wear it.

Better ban cars then to stop them being used in getaways. What percentage of crimes involve using a niqab? I thought people could wear what clothes they wanted in the UK?

Some Muslims believe that it is required. Some don't, but say it is highly recommended.

I mean, you would hate it if someone took something important to you away, wouldn't you hun?

You said it was a secuirty risk, when it clearly is not.
Why do you think you have the right to tell other people what to wear?
