http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/allison-pearson/8449101/We-too-should-ban-the-burka.html What do you all think about this one? Personally, I am divided. On one hand I would like to see the burqa banned as the columnist rightly points out - it is a symbol of subjugation. Fully covered, they lose their identities and no wonder they are treated like cattle with few rights. Women who wear the burqa/niqab may be fearful of what might happen if they refuse to do so. However if it is made illegal then they can always tell their husband/brother/father that they are just obeying the infidel's laws. On the other hand I think it is none of the state's business to tell people what to wear. It is a slippery slope best not trodden on.
