Banning the burqa is the peaceful solution.
Many Muslims believe that the Islamic holy book, the Qur'an, and the collected traditions of the life of Muhammed, or hadith, require both men and women to dress and behave modestly in public. However, this requirement, called hijab, has been interpreted in many different ways by Islamic scholars (ulema) and Muslim communities (see Women and Islam); the burqa is not specifically mentioned in the Quran
From what I remember that's true, both sexes should dress in a modest way, the idea is not to "advertise" the body as such, even man should not show more than the lower arms and legs, and that only while working.

Unfortunately I don't own a Quran so I can't be 100% sure the statement above is correct, but if it is, that means...
1) Men have to dress modestly too, not just woman
2) Dressing modestly doesn't necessarily mean wearing a ninja suit
