  • Burqas should be banned

    In my opinion, I think burqas should be banned. In the Islamic Holy Book, Quran.There are no rules regarding Muslim women wearing burqas and I think it's disrespectful to God because making up stuff like this and stating that it's part of my religion, is a very wrong deed.Another reason I think why burqas should be banned is due to Canada's safety.In Canada, everyone has the right to anything they want but in Quebec, people are speaking against women burqas. I think it's the right thing because no one knows who is under the veil.There can possibly be a terrorist under that veil.I am not saying that a specific religion is behind this, but terrorists can found a way to hide under that veil and could possibly do something bad.Also if Muslim females are being forced to do this that I think it's a sin.Everyone in the world has their own right to do anything they want.Still, in 2018, Small countries still kill females just they don't go according to what people say.Wearing a burqa should be banned due to safety as well as obeying the religion.

  • Ban the burka

    Because it is a safety system. If you are wearing a burka you do not know who is behind that mask that way, let’s say they are a terrorist, and the police can’t catch because they’ve run away. The police can’t ask witnesses what they looked like because the are wearing a burka and then they will still be in our streets and become an even bigger danger to society.

  • Demonstrates the subjugation of women by men

    Muslim women are brought up, indoctrinated, to believe they should cover their bodies in order to be demure, modest and meek. This indoctrination can be so ingrained that no matter how successful and rational a muslim woman may become, she still believes that in order to be a good muslim she must cover up. Thus their argument is often that it is their right to wear the burka. When that argument is accepted, it also accepts and condones the subjugation of women by men and the establishment, religious or otherwise. To see such inequality and subjugation openly displayed and tolerated on our streets and workplaces is an insult to all British women and must be banned. Suffragettes fought and died for women's right only 100 years ago and all that is now being undermined by our acceptance of this sign and open demonstration of women's continued inequality. All the talk by politians, feminists, journalists and the media in general about equal rights, equal pay, a ban on sexism, etc, etc is laughable whilst this open display of inequality is condoned and allowed to continue.

  • Because they are abusive to women

    In the Islamic book the Quran, there is at no point of rules and order to put on or wear the burka as a religious practice. In the western world, women have fought for so long for rights and this is a complete spit in the face for women in the Islamic country. Furthermore, in the 60's and 70's in middle east, countries such as Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan, 87% of women did not wear the it. This is the burka has no place in civil society.

  • It's about safety.

    With the bursa we can't know who's under there, putting both muslims and non muslims at risk as either terrorists or other criminals like neo nazi's can use it to hide harm innocent people. Muslim countries such as Malaysia see the threat and don't allow it, and we should do the same.

  • Because I can't see there face

    Lions have been a great game and we have a great game today at all times he is the only man in this game that is the only game I can play on my computer and my phone and is a great app to be connected with a router and.

  • Yes it should be banned

    There is a difference between arguing that it should be banned and that it cannot be banned according to a countries constitution that is often missed in the media. Another argument that confuses the issue is the one about other face coverings such as balaclavas, masks or motorcycle helmets. These are optional and every normal person does not walk around with them on all day except when no-one is looking. The burka is not optional and is usually justified as part of the many rules in islam for looking. As a symbol of repression and control, and a symbol of extremism it should be banned, just as walking around in a swastika is banned in many countries. Also the natural response of young children to such coverings is one of fear. No-one has the right to walk around dressed in a way that scares young children. If someone took their child to school dressed as a zombie and scared a whole lot of kids I don't think the principal would let that go.

  • I hold no gurdges on Muslim, I admire their courage. Though it is not the fabric that's the doubt but the person we cannot see

    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.

  • No they are religious.

    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 is a reflection of religion!! Not for people's comfort.

    I understand how people are saying that it is not stated in their religious texts or books that they are required to cover up, but I'm Christianity it does not state for individuals to cover themselves when entering into nunnery. Nuns cover themselves! So why is it different when individuals wear a burka. True it does not specify that they must wear it but it.Is.A.Choice. THEIR CHOICE not people who feel uncomfortable about their appearance. Not all people who follow Islam cover up, some don't, some do, exactly how people devoted to Christianity don't always cover up. It is a choice of religion and a choice of self faith. Don't make is political!!

  • Muslim women do have a choice

    Those who say that muslim women are oppressed by wearing the burqa or that its violating their own rights you're wrong. Muslim women make their own choice by wearing the burqa their not being forced. Why should other cultures like christians or jews wear their religious or cultural clothing, but muslim women cant wear a burqa? The whole 'their terrorist stuff is just bullshit' yes i know there are a lot of terrorist stuff going on but banning a persons right to wear their clothing is wrong. Knowing the difference between a terrorist with a mask and a muslim women wearing a niqab or burqa is quite obvious don't you think? Each person should have the opportunity to express their cultural identity in a free country, and not be regarded as a woman that is oppressed.

  • Go stuff yourself`!!!!!!

    Why is it when Jewish women and nuns are veiled they are seen as committed and FILLED WITH SPIRIT but when Muslim women wear hijab and burkas they are oppressed. Its true that some women might be influenced to wear the burka but most make the choice themselves, much like Christians choice to become nuns. Taking away the burka would be the same as taking away religious rights.

  • Would you like it if someone told you not to do something you want to do?

    Wearing religious clothing enables people to demonstrate their faith, individuality and originality. Being able to demonstrate ones faith is a basic right that everyone is entitled to without being discriminated, questioned or looked down upon, therefore to ban them would be an infringement upon the rights of millions. It is stated in the Core British Values that everyone has the right to practise their religion and identity freely be it in whatever way they wish to express it; they may express their identity through religious clothing thus by banning it would be stripping them of their identity and it would be going against what the Core British Values say.

  • BUrkas are terrible but:

    I think burkas are a horrible, they completely violate women’s right, but banning them would make ya no better, instead we should encourage to not use them by education.
    When I say burkas a terrible I in no way meen Muslims are terrible, I think Islam can be followed without undermining women

  • American liberty allows

    It is hard for a non Muslim to give position on a religious practice such as the ritual wearing of cloth. I have read people claiming to be Muslim women declare that the burkha, the chador is freeing. I have talked with University of Iowa students who went unveiled and adopted the practices of the females here... Current style they wear it. But I recall a time when she was trying to select from the shoulder and hip scarves we were wearing so she could send a picture home to her Middle Eastern passport.

  • It should not bee banned

    I don't think m that banning burqas is a good idea.. I agree with some people who claim that women can be forced to hide their faces.. But banning won't change the fact of abusing, if anything those abusive spouses could hurt then even more or ban them from ever going out without hiding their face.. It's a complicated topic.. If they WANT to wear it, we should let them.. The problem is that you don't know who wants to and who is forced to. But banning will mostly serve those who are scared and let's face it, those numerous attacks were concluded by women who hid their faces so now we're safer, or not?

  • No burqa banned

    Everyone should just have a good time and love eachother and stripping others rights isn't fun fam so why don't we all share some love and not hate anymore soung good? All oppinions respected but like let the people live how they want to okies? Share the love fam cool

  • Yes, there are dangers of letting people wear them in public, but banning burkas is not what needs to be done.

    Freedom of religion is not just an important thing for society, but burkas are apart of the Islamic culture, and if safety concerns arise, banning burkas is not the only solution, and should definitely not be treated like it. Putting work into security, on airplanes, in concerts, theaters and rallies, should instead be the way to coexist with this apart of Islamic culture.
