As a Muslim, I Think Canada Should Ban the Niqab and Burka in Public

Since this is such a hot topic in various places in Western Society, i thought this story was of interest since it's a Muslim Woman who hates seeing her fellow man forced into wearing one in public.

www.huffingtonpost.ca...


As a Muslim mother who never saw a niqab when I was growing up in Karachi, Pakistan, I am astonished to see Canada's judiciary caving in to Islamists who have nothing but contempt for Canada's values of gender equality. I write this as a Muslim Canadian who does not have any specific political leanings.

But in the 25 years I have called Canada home, I have seen a steady rise of Muslim women being strangled in the pernicious black tent that is passed off to naïve and guilt-ridden white, mainstream Canadians as an essential Islamic practice. The niqab and burka have nothing to do with Islam.

They're the political flags of the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, the Taliban, al-Qaida and Saudi Arabia. Now I learn I have not only to fight the medieval, theocratic adherents of my faith for a safe space for myself, I have to battle the Federal Court of Canada as well, which has come out on the side of these face masks.


Not all Muslim women want this, and in Westernized Society's like here in the USA i can only imagine it's the same in Canada and other Modernized Society's.

Do they wear them because their husbands are sadomasochistic? Insecure? Feel inferior next to Women?

What do you guys think?

Let the Mud flinging begin!

Good to hear. I can speak with some experience on this one and I can tell you many Muslims feel the same way. Unfortunately many do not.

I'm sure they wear them for a myriad of reasons.

People love banning things nowadays.
We live in an authoritarian do-as-I-say world now.

How do they look like in their passport pictures ? Do they have their Niqab on ?

How can you identify them when they look like this ?

As a woman, if you feel like wearing a black Hefty bag, fantastic. Go for it.

Just don't complain when others don't. Nor should the islamic "men" be allowed to enforce their views on others regarding humility.

Yes, lets start banning more religious stuff, i hate religious people. Lets ban turbans on east indian men, well because why not.

Lets also ban crosses because its the religion of pedophiles, good old priest am i right.

Also lets not forget the good old orthodox jews traditon of having the woman shave her hair and wear a wig after her wedding. Also lets ban those sheets they use in bed because the man cannot be touched by a feeble woman, lets do this.

They should have to fallow the same rules as anyone else. Nothing on the head while the photo is being taken. I don't care what happened before that or after that. People making this a religious issue when it's not.

Other cultures dress has exactly what to do with anything, again?

Oh, focus on Islam, the religion of most of the Middle Eastern countries NATO is bombing. Better to dehumanize and demonize them so the mass death and destruction go down better.

Wear what you want in public, but if you go into a shop or something at least take off the veil.

If I have to remove my motorbike helmet to buy petrol from the station you should have to take off your veil. Can't have one set of rules for one group and a separate set of rules for others.

At the airport women who wear burkas ask for a woman agent to take them into a private room. They remove the burka so they can be seen by the agent.

Well, come on now......in this world of "Idiocracy" it is "racist" to ask some for and ID before they vote! But yea, let the guilt flow and stupidity rule till the country you knew is no longer recognizable in the name of Social Justice and Political Correctness!

and people wonder why others lose their snip............

I don't support the banning of anything religious. I support the freedom to practice religion. My hope is that through discussion more and more people will drop these archaic belief systems. Which is happening thankfully.

To answer your question, I do think it's completely sexist in nature. Now it's tradition, sure, but it's rooted in a patriarchal belief system. That's Abrahamic religions for you.

There is nowhere in Quran that women should wear those. This is later "invention" to hide their property ( women) and reduce female rights and lower female status to similar as owning "a vase".

And all documents which are used as ID should show whole face. No matter what is the sex of person who checks the ID. And burka or niqab are not religious clothing.

Take a look back few decades, women in arab countries did wear very modern clothes

Iranian women back in 1970´s

We should definitely also ban magic underwear for Mormons. Although it would be difficult to know if they were still wearing them after the ban. ; )

This is not a religious question, nor is it specifically a question of Abrahamic religious requirements.

These two garments are products of two forces: ethnic groups and ideological philosophy. They have nothing to do with the central tenets of Islam or the mainstream practises of Ibadi Islam, Sunni Islam, Ismaeli Islam, Shia Islam...

As a Muslim, I think women should get to choose what they want to wear in public. If a woman wants to wear daisy dukes or a nijab, she should be free to do so.
