Majority of the British public want the burka to be bannedWatch
It's time for the UK government to give the people what they want and ban the burka.
What valid reason is there for banning freedom of expression in this way? All this is just down to reactionary scaremongering, rather than any credible evidence of a real problem.
but she does not look like what Boris said
-When using a vehicle
-When confronted by police or in courts of law
-When doing public transactions eg. Shopping or using a bank
-In the classroom;whether teaching or being taught
-When in front of medical authority
And probably many
It is pointless to ban it just because of discomfort by others,but they should be prepared to cooperate with british society.
Many muslims oppose the burqa against a Saudi-brand conservative model, e.g. in Morocco their sale is illegal, where terrorists used burqas to hide bombs and weapons, many religious scholars in Egypt. And although I disagree to violence and Islamophobia, in the current climate is a security risk for the women themselves.
And indeed on the topic of free choice, a person's freedom ends where others' freedom to safety (due to earlier highlighted concerns), and being able to talk to someone face to face ends, is endangered. And often there is no free choice involved in this decision, as they would face very bad consequences if they decided to remove them (only for some, yet defend the burqa in fear of repercussions).
Britain wants to be accepted but this is against proper social engagement, identification by police and authorities, and against their welfare, which seems to me, valid reason to ban the burqa in this country
Should also ban the burqa while we're at it.
