Ban the burqa

and she can't be called racist


A Muslim member of the French government has backed a court's decision to deny citizenship to a Moroccan woman who wears the burqa. See here.
Urban Affairs Minister Fadela Amara said she hoped last month's ruling would "dissuade certain fanatics from imposing the burqa on their wives". "The burqa is a prison, it's a straightjacket," she told Le Parisien. "It is not a religious insignia but the insignia of a totalitarian political project that advocates inequality between the sexes and which is totally devoid of democracy."
This is one of those rare cases where EU harmonisation would be a good thing. The niqab and burqa could be banned in enclosed public places and nationality denied to those wearing the garment.
Though, no doubt the feminist 'sisters' would protest - saying that it's a woman's right to choose to be oppressed.
