Reader’s Comment of the Day: Want to ‘Ban the Burqa’? Take tips from France


In response to Laura Perrins: Cameron’s veil ban fails the reality check, sfin wrote:

When France moved to ‘Ban the Burqa’ they faced the usual squeals from the discrimination industry. So they simply changed the wording to reflect the fact that French culture demands facial recognition and communication and therefore “the routine covering of the face in public” is against the law of the République.

There are various sub-clauses to this covering motorcycle helmets and scarves in cold weather etc., but the lesson to learn is how to make such a law, totally non-discriminatory (you know, that old English common law principle?)

Whenever I’m in England and I see a woman in full Niqab and Hijab, I feel uncomfortable – and I don’t see why I should.
