It is perfectly understandable if women choose not to wear Western-style tight or revealing clothing, preferring instead to dress modestly for personal, cultural and/or religious reasons. However burqas and niqabs overstep this mark and go way beyond ‘modesty’.
Burqas cover the entire body making it difficult to decipher even the body shape of what is underneath. They can have a mesh over the eyes, and gloves may be worn so no flesh is visible.
The niqab is a face veil that covers most of the face, apart from the eyes. However even the Qur’an does not command women to cover their face.
There are Quranic verses regarding female attire and the importance of dressing modestly, such as verses 24:31 and 33:59: “O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused.”
There is no compelling religious reason why women should keep their faces covered, which instead highlights Islamic cultural issues regarding oppression and whether women are being forced into wearing them. Even if burqas/niqabs are worn through free choice they are still degrading, incompatible with Western society, a symbol of ‘Islamisation’ and indeed an embarrassment to humanity itself.
Painful viewing but ‘highly educated’ Muslimas describe their ‘entitlement’ in this Channel 4 debate at the hardline East London mosque. It must be noted that at least two of the veiled guests are believed to be Islamists (I guess many in the audience as well!) and this was not conveyed to the unsuspecting viewer.
How Do Non-Muslims View Niqabs & Burqas?
The majority of people find the sight of a woman in a niqab or burqa, which resembles a ‘mobile tent’, both morally offensive and divisive.In September a ComRes poll for Channel 4 News“revealed that 55% of Brits surveyed want to see a ban on full face veils in all public places similar to the laws in France, ‘because full face veils made them feel uneasy and unsure how to relate to the wearer.’” Eighty percent of Brits “support a ban on full face veils being worn in schools, courts and hospitals, while 58% want to see all head coverings abolished in these institutions … 75% of Brits said they were ‘unsure how to relate’ to women wearing the full face veil and niqab – which leaves just the eyes visible. People also admitted to feeling ‘uneasy’, ‘nervous’ and ‘threatened’ by the full face veil.”
So despite clear opposition to this clothing there has been and still are ample opportunities for public debate on this issue, but dhimmi slaves like David Cameron (who stayed with a Muslim family for two days in 2007 and subsequently thinks he is an Islamic expert), and Nick Clegg have both declared, without consultation with the public, that banning burqas is off-limits and would be an ‘un-British’ thing to do!
Cameron and Clegg say women should not be forced to wear burqas or niqabs and ‘ideally’ they should not be worn in hospitals or schools, but when exactly did women wearing a ‘black bin bag’ or a balaclava suddenly become ‘British’? It is pure cowardice because they don’t want to upset the PC brigade; Muslims may become violent and these politicians could lose the Muslim vote.
