Should we Ban the Burqa? In France they have already done so to the outcry of their muslim community. Taking away there religious expression is like taking away free speech. We might as well tell all male Jews they may not wear Kippahs or male sikhs they may not wear Turbans.
burqa and shikh turbans are different things. burqa hides the identity of a person. it totally cover her face and body. we don't know who the person is. if that person in burqa does some wrong we cannot possibly identify her even with the latest technology in hand just because we she/he is covered in burqa. this is not the case with turban of shikhs. in this era of muslim terrorism, we must know the identity of every muslim people so that we can easily monitor them.
therefore burqa must be banned.
i don't know how religious freedom is related to free speech.
