Most people would consider Denamark and Danish People to be highly civilised and it is now set to ban the wearing of The Burqa and niqab in public.

Denmark is also thought to be quite liberal by bland Scandanavian standards, e.g. it rejected the Swedish Insanity of bringing in laws to make sex workers' lives hell on earth, which we have slavishly followed!

Denmark set to ban the burqa despite fears for religious freedom | The Independent

I have only ever seen the tent as I would call it, where the woman can only see out of a gauze being worn in Galway and the wearing of the full face veil is quite common here now as well!

When I lived abroad in a European City with a 10% Muslim Population, I only ever saw 1 woman wering the full face veil and ironically that was at the airport.

I would defend to the death anybody's right to wear a hijab, but I find this symbollic of the opression of women.

The Complete loon who did the recent Manchester bombing deliberately targeting women, children and gay people would have forced his wife to wear the full rig out!

There is absolutely nothing in Islam mandating it and AFAIK several some Arab Countries ban it also.
When are we going to follow suit?

I especially like the idea that anybody forcing a woman to wear the cage in France can be fined up to €30K!

I don't recall ever seeing the niqab much in Europe, but certainly in Britain and here!

Austria has recently banned the burka. When will an Irish politician have the guts to suggest banning it here?

I wonder where those self declared great feminists, our Tanaiste and The Batty Chick stand on this one?

What was appropriate to the desert 1300 years ago ain't necessarily suited to a dynamic Western European Society!

Mods, might I humbly suggest, do a poll on this!

The hijab is fine... little different from the scarves my granny and her mates used to wear to mass or to the shops when the weather was inclement back in the day...

However the niqab and the burka should be banned everywhere imo... apart from in the privacy of your own home which would include the bedroom for those who get a kick out of such things.

Personally, I do stare when I see a lady togged out in either a Burqa or Niqab.

Ironically some sex workers offer services in Islamic Gear do I would reckon some standard services would not be possible!:rolleyes:

The Great Lebanese American porn star - Mia Khalifa, AKA Mia Callista, took a lot of flack for skitty porn videos performing acts in Hijab!
