The burqa are usually enforced through violence in which hurts the woman, who also happens to be a person. In 2003, a French survey discovered that 77% of the girls who wore it they wore it because they were threatened on wearing it. They are also mentally punsihed. Many women on social media get blackmailed and threatened for not wearing a burqa in their picture, the cases have been rising. The burqa covers up domestic violence. According an insightful article, eighty percent of the women in Afghanistan reported that they suffered under domestic violence. In Pakistan, it goes higher to ninety percent. Although many people argue about this, it is statically proved and the only reason these people can argue is because the burqa covers the truth. The violence in this situation is most commonly known as Spouse abuse. Spouse abuse is a profound and terrible crime. Which is why the abuser urges their spouse to wear the burqa, that way many people can’t see the crime. The violence also hurts Muslim women mentally and emotionally. Just by wearing it in public is confirming that women are inferior and must be segregated. One inspiration towards wearing the burqa is that one of Mohammed’s followers was able to recognize one of his wives at night. This can be interpreted that it is meant to prevent being recognized, women are not meant to be acknowledge as an individual rather as someone who is someone’s object who can’t make their own decisions. People are recognized by their physical attributes too, take away those attributes resembles to taking away the person’s individuality. Lastly, the burqa provokes doubt. When a person can’t see someone’s face, it creates fear and doubt. It initially makes the person feel uncomfortable because they don’t know if the individual who is covered up, hiding something or they are sincerely just minding their own business innocently. Yes, although it is true that women are forced to wear this, an individual is not 100% percent sure if a woman is in the burqa, who don’t know the person at all, the individual doesn't know how they look like. The situation is the same as saying a person wearing a ski mask goes into the bank. They have the freedom to wear it but it conveys doubt and fear to those inside the bank. Plus, its true that Allah made Adam first but Adam became lonely, he needed someone, a woman. A man needs a women as much as the woman needs the man. She helped him make decisions and although it was bad, they helped each other through it and continued on. Allah made woman, if he made you, why wouldn't He love you? You are also his creation! Why cover yourself when He made you without clothes! He didn't make you inside a burqa, Allah made you naked, that doesnt't mean go naked, but Allah wouldn't want His little princess hide herself and lock herself. She is not alone.
I have nothing against Muslims, in fact I respect them for their courage. But I don't believe the fabric is dangerous, it's the individual hiding in there. It creates doubt because its similar as to someone walking inside the bank with a ski mask on. It is their right, but it creates doubt and makes people afraid. I am not saying that those who wear burqa's are terrorists, I am just saying that burqa's just provoke doubt for we cannot see their faces therefore we cannot see what your intentions are. Plus some women wear burqa's because of spouse abuse, according an insightful article, eighty percent of the women in Afghanistan reported that they suffered under domestic violence. In Pakistan, it goes higher, all the way to ninety percent. Although many people argue about this, it is statically proven and the only reason these people can argue is because the burqa covers the truth. The domestic violence in this situation is most commonly known as Spouse abuse. In Europe, spouse abuse is a profound and terrible crime. Which is why the abuser urges their spouse to wear the burqa, that way many people can't see the crime. The burqa blocks any social contact and automatically make one gender inferior to the other which, in other words, is called discrimination. Both genders are as equally as important as the other. Just by wearing it in public is confirming that women are inferior and must be segregated. One inspiration towards wearing the burqa is that one of Mohammad's followers was able to recognize one of his wives at night. This can interpreted that the burqa is meant to prevent being recognized,women are not meant to be acknowledge as an individual rather as someone who is someone's. An object,an object who can't make their own decisions. Individuals are recognized by their physical attributes too, take away those attributes resembles to taking away the person's individuality. Plus usually enforced through violence. It hurts women, who also happens to be a person. In 2003, a French survey discovered that 77% of the girls who wore a burqa wore it because they were threatened on wearing it. To Muslims, it is a grave crime for not wearing the head gear and the women were punished inhumanly, such as having acid thrown at their faces for not wearing it. These women were also mentally punished. Many women on social media get blackmailed and threatened for not wearing a burqa in their pictures, the cases have been rising. Women are beautiful, for that is why God made them, yes God made Adam first but he gave him a woman because he was lonely, he need someone. A woman, who helps him make decisions, they may have been bad but they went through it together. Adam was bound to be a sinner but with a companion, he was able to handle it and continue. Men need women as much as women need men. Its a fact not an opinion.
I want religious reform, hence I will always support the burqa ban. If the reform isn't coming from within, then I am willing to justify the white man's burden to the ends of the earth to ban these ancient, barbaric customs like asking a woman to cover herself up only because she is a woman.
I'm thd world we live in and the problems with have with theft . Killings even accidents how can we help the police if we c Ant describe who we saw in a incident . Plus in schools I want my children to see their faces . We could all hide our faces and that could make the situation even worse . So stop them wearing them please
If a man was to go into a public place wearing a balaclava or a motorcycle helmet, he would be made to take it off. I don't think it is right for women to be an exception. Also, the covering of one's face can be frightening and threatening to those around them.
Obscenity comes in many forms. Nudity for example is obscene and almost no supports lifting the nudity ban, not even on religious grounds. Sure, if you want (or your husband makes you) to wear it or wear nothing at all in the home or on private property, go ahead. The burka is disgusting (not the women, they are beautiful) and should not be allowed in public.
The Burqa is not included in the Quran. Terrorism's main job it to spread fear and the burqa causes just that in society. Its not Islamophobic to ban civic unrest. The burqa is a extremist Islamic flag. Hiding one's face with an article of clothing that has the reputation of terrorism and not Islam needs to be banned. As for muslims expressing themselves the hijab is actually mentioned in the quran and it is a safe way, without covering one's face, to express religious beliefs.
All Burkers should be banned immediately, it is a very worrying time for all of us and anyone can hide anything under them. It's time to stop pussy footing around them, I and am pretty sure most people feel very intimidated with people wearing them, terrorist are a real part of our lives now
There is no place in the Qur'an that says for women to wear the full-face burwa/niqab. They are misogynistic items of clothing designed and enforced by psychoticly bigoted men in Saudi Arabia. It legitimises rape- the 'logic' is that when faces are always covered, men (that being Muslim men) can't help but get so aroused that they rape the woman not wearing the face cover, and it is therefore the woman's fault. Is this something you want in a civilised society? It's not in any way religious, but even if it was, I think we all know if a Christian wanted to wear something equally bigoted and stupid, everyone would say no and if a Jew wanted to, a bunch of lefty politically correct students would probably bomb a Synagogue.
It should be banned world wide. The Muslim religion is still in the middle ages with this and how it treats women. It's not even in the Koran that women even have to wear it. If women have to wear it than so should the men. I'm getting tired of this crap.
I believe Burkas should not be banned as they are an ancient religious Religious custom that has been practiced for thousands of years. To ban them would be to infringe upon the religious rights of millions of people, plus there is no real foreseeable reason they should be banned as they do not cause any harm to anyone.
It hasn't showed any sign of harming us so far, some people live in fear of their past! Do you think more people or less people would send you hate mail if you forced women to feel exposed and anti-religious?
You all haven't thought this through. YOUR BRAINS ARE VERY SMALL
You can't really believe you have power over 1,296,776 people in Britain and yes i agree it could be dangerous but that is a very slim chance and could you not just have I.D with them wearing a hijab or another religious item because what those aren't banned if we haven't did up to now then why should we now please think through the probability of any threats happening and then think about the ban again. If you still think that you should ban it then you my not-wanted friend are simply racist!
How would it be banning christians from wearing cross,or sikh from turban, or nuns from modest clothing. We need to give space to people and respect their religion. There are many whom I personally wont fell comfortable with e.G people with tatoos and piercing all around their face .Should we ban that too? Should we ban a skier from wearing face guard , a person from wearing a face mask for health reasons.,...
We wear what we are comfortable with and what ever percent of our bodies we cover this is surely for a reason that we are humans and live with a sense of modesty. Muslim females who choose to cover their faces do this for their own protection and comfort level.We have no right to dictate terms to others..
How about banning the cosmetic industry for exploiting females and reducing their worth to their physique...
How can someone be afraid and intimidated by a piece of cloth...Have u ever talked to them? Those who have can well attest to the fact how humble burqa clad women are.
Banning them for practicing their religion is making them feel worse about their own people and country...By the way not all immigrants cover their face....There are many reverts too....Do ur research
The society has taken such an ugly turn that it doesnot value anything lesser than their own prejudices. How would it be banning christians from wearing cross, sikhs from turban, jews from cap and nuns from modest attires... Clothing is sign of piety not oppression...
How about banning all the cosmetic industries that make women feel worthless if not falling in line with the description of beauty. How about banning people from having tatoos , sunglasses.Banning skiers from covering their face , people wearing masks for health purpose.
People blame Islam from intolerance.I SEE muslims being victimised and cornered.
Why should People feel uneasy in moving around with burqa clad women.Have they ever tried talking to them?
If u see yourself in mirror what does those clothes on your body say?
Modesty i suppose. Same is true for them as well.We need to understand this and learn to give space to others...
You might not like it..Well there are many things I personally don't like about others.. Artificial makeup, tatoos, piercings , grenn red hair crazy styles, etc.. So should we ban them just because i am not comfortable???
We need to develop concern and respect for our fellow beings... If a country bans my freedom of choice it simply loses the respect I as a citizen hold for my people.
I don't think it is right to disrespect the Muslims culture in a way that can be racist to them. I think that banning the burka should not be an issue as it is a simple NO! We don't ban others for wearing cultural clothing so i don't think it should be a problem with Muslims.
Because if they commit crime no one will see them as well maybe a man wears a burqa (that's not allowed).. . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
People don't have a right to say that the burqa should be banned because its part of the religion and we don't see people having negativity on other religion so why should we all go against Islam. Its a good thing a women wants to cover up people dress so revealing that it attracts people when they don't want to feel like this then why be so revealing. Its a good thing they want to wear it they are following their religion
By banning the burqua as it is "oppressive", we are just oppressing the people who want to wear it even more. A large amount of people wear it as a choice. If it was a Christian thing, no offence but I bet nothing would be done about it. It's a piece of fabric. How is that dangerous?!?
Why ban burqas. It is like the government want to take away all our freedom. We're no longer to decide the way we dress? As long as it isn't vulgar or offensive; Why the fuck should people not be allowed to chose what they want to wear. I'm gonna wear whatever I want thank you. How do burqas even support terrorism nor any crime. If we ban burqas, why don't we also ban hoodies and motorbike helmets and maybe even ninja costumes that they sell at Party Palace, why not ban those, they cover the face don't they? Burqas are only frightening because we are letting our imagination run wild. So wake up and grow up.
