Ban on Muslim burqa and niqab: Is a burqa ban not based on discrimination?

  • Burqas aren't always good

    It is a known fact that 87% of women living in the middle east as a muslim are abused in their own home and forced into things that they may not want to do..... How can we ever truly know that this is not the reason that women wear burqas? They are hiding themselves from the world. They are being discriminated on as women. Therefore, when people see them in public, they assume that they are different, and separate, as they are almost wearing a "uniform", therefore encouraging further discrimination.

  • The wording is weird but...

    The burqa ban is wholeheartedly based on religious discrimination. People do not understand why people would wear head and face coverings, never mind the fact that they are from a different culture with different values. Why do you get to decide what women do or do not decide to wear. Since all of you are obviously living in first world countries, the women do have a choice. Sit down and be quiet, what women wear does not concern you.

  • Burqas are insecurity to people

    I agree with the fact that ban on burqa ban is not based on discrimination. I think it has more to do with personal believes. Burquas were bringing insecurity to people and how they felt about them self. I mean specially the women were the one who were facing these insecurities and self protection from many problems.

  • No its about the ability to identify the individual

    A ban on Muslim burqa and niqab is not about religious discrimination. It is about ensuring that individuals in our society can be identified. Whether we like it or not we live in a society where we are identified by passports, drivers' licenses and when things go wrong, surveillance footage. When individuals are hidden from head to toe it makes identifications difficult if not impossible. If you want a non religious example of similar requirements, motor bike riders are not allowed to wear helmets or balaclavas in banks.
