Topic ANOTHER REASON TO BAN BURKHA 
Author JOHN ODDY 
Date Created 02/02/2008 10:46:11 
Message Two more suicide bombers, this time women, who hid their bombs beneath their burkhas. There have been calls in the past to ban these clothes that hide the entire body but we bowed to Muslim modesty and have not banned them. Once again our weakness towards these followers of evil leaves us vulnerable to the depths of depravity they will fall to. What’s it going to take two “English Muslim” women with knickers full of semtex blowing themselves to pieces in the middle of M&S for us to realise the dangers facing us?.

Message This has nothing to do with the Burqa, this is to do with opression from the west...you say that muslim women are opressed but we are not, we are strong but yet you try to ridicule us and force us to do things we wish not to do.


Muslim women choose to wear the burqa as for suicide bombers wearing burqa does not mean ALLAH women are going to do this......just like priests rape children do you then think ALL priests are going to do this.


Open your eyes and understand ISLAM is a beautiful religion it is nothing like the media has portrayed it to be.

Message John Oddy - you're wrong for so many different reasons.
You're the BNP's Iftikhar and I'm glad you work for them cause you spout exactly the same mindless crap that'll keep your party at 0.1% of the vote forever.

Message Ladies.
Forgive me but it is a well known and documented fact that Muslim women are oppressed, David Cameron, the leader of the Conservative Party even said so only the other day. If you are happy to wear such clothing then so be it but think of all those that are not, yet are still forced to wear it because of your oppressive men folk.
Living in the West has it’s advantages and freedom of expression is one of them. Outside of Islam men and women are attracted to each other by a sexual chemistry, that is why the female body is built the way it is. By your own standards I know you think of us as being morally corrupt but that is our choice and we are not restricted by your outdated religion. Muslims complain that Western culture corrupts the daughters of Islam, well, if that is the case, why bring them here?. You know a fire burns so you do not put your hand in it do you. Muslim communities across the country are complaining that their children are becoming Westernised, why complain?, what did you expect, your children see a better way of life than the Koran offers so why should they not want it, it’s like taking them into a sweet shop and saying they can’t have any.
Incidentally the percentage of 0.1% you mentioned was not our percentage of the vote, that was the amount we failed by to get elected onto the GLC in the last election in 2004, this year the Labour party have already speculated they expect the BNP to get at least two seats and are “exceedingly” worried about our chances of winning the Mayoral Elections in May, imagine the horror of a BNP London Mayor!!!!!.

Message Nobel Peace Prize winner "Tawakkul Karman," 'The mother of Yemen's revolution,' when asked about her Hijab by journalists and how it is not proportionate with her level of intellect and education, replied: “Man in early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I’m wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It’s the removal of clothes again that is a regression back to the ancient times.

Hijab is more than just a religious obligation. People need to realise that, in its own right, it symbolises liberty. It gives women the freedom to show male strangers only the parts of the body that they wish them to see. Yes, the simple salwar kameez and kurti do come under the category of ‘modest' clothing. But if men want to objectify women, hijab just makes things harder for them. I would even go so far as to call it the ultimate feminist statement. A Muslim woman's definition of empowerment is being judged by her personality alone, leaving her looks to be appreciated only by those who matter. To those who refer to the burkha as a “medieval garb,” I ask: Why is it that a nun wearing a similar robe is looked upon with respect, while a woman in a burkha is labelled as ‘backward'?

Veil is a sign of woman liberation from Current Naked liberalism, unethical fashion, social harassment, over consciousness about figure etc and become a sex icon and toy of the troy.
Veil is not mere name of piece of cloth but it also has complete women education and training to enjoy her full, fledge life without any fear and become tradable commodity and symbol of enjoyment.

Europe is needlessly focussing the "veil issue" which relates to the lives of a very small portion of European society. It is estimated that there are only about 2000 Muslim women in France and 30 in Belgium who wear burqa. European Establishments concern with the affairs of such a tiny minority represents a clear instance of cultural bigtory. Those wearing burqa were ridiculed as "walking-coffins" or " asymmetrical cylinders". In very cold winter people walk about with scarves tightly wrapped around their face. In those cases no security issue arises, but the wearing of burqa raises security concern. Burqa is regarded as a symbol of male domination by the self-proclaimed torchbearers of liberty but they do not know that Islam gave women the rights that the west could not even think about till 20th century. Burqa is worn as a matter of choice. Nowadays young women choose to wear full veil seeing it as a powerful statement of identity, The parliaments of various European countries are voting to legislate the banning of the veils, In Switzerland a ban on minarets was imposed. The campaign against Islamic symbols is on the rise because of a sense of insecurity in some Europeans. A ban on the burqa is bound to widen the differences rather than bridging them. It will just encourage discrimination against Muslims in European society.

There might be some Muslims who deny the niqab as having any legitimate basis in Islam, but when faced with evidence from Islamic traditions, I wonder, what evidence to they bring to support their preposterous arguments. And, Let’s for the sake of the argument say this has nothing to do with Islam, it still has everything to do with the right of women to determine for themselves how they want to dress. Not covering whole face or not is up to interpretation of various schools of thought and they shall be accountable on their intentions behind interpretation but I have numerous examples around me where women are doing complete veil and they are very much professional and active in every walk of life and living a very "respectable" and healthy life along with every contemporary suitable fashion and ornaments they may feel comfortable with.
