Clash Poll: Court Upholds Ban On Full Face Burkas – Do You Agree?

Written by K. Walker on July 11, 2017

Is this an idea whose time has come? Or is it ‘Islamophobic’ and insensitive?

Courts in Europe (yes, Europe!) have upheld Belgium’s ban on wearing the full-face Niqab in public.

The court ruled that the restriction sought to guarantee social cohesion, the ‘protection of the rights and freedoms of others’ and that it was ‘necessary in a democratic society’.
Belgium banned the wearing of the full-face veil under a June 2011 law. It prohibits appearing in public ‘with a face masked or hidden, in whole or in part, in such a way as to be unidentifiable’.

Violations can result in fines and up to seven days in jail.
France was the first European country to ban the niqab in April 2011. –Read More

Why should the law prevent someone from covering their face like that?

Maybe it had something to do with stories like this one:

One dull afternoon in late autumn, a 27-year-old British man of Somali origin, with uneven teeth and chubby cheeks, became the latest terror suspect to disappear, making a mockery of the UK security services, police and judiciary.
After spending several hours in the dilapidated An-Noor Masjid (mosque) and community centre on Church Road in Acton, west London, he sliced off his electronic tag, slipped on a burka and vanished.
The fugitive had been subject to a controversial Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measure (Tpim) notice, which was supposed to restrict his movements.

Or this one:

A senior leader of an Al Qaeda-linked terror group has been captured dressed up like a Muslim woman – wearing a garment which is a headpiece and covers the body, too, known as a burka.

So, it’s not exactly a rare thing. And strictly speaking, their religion does not require covered faces. Even Muslim countries, before they’ve been taken over by radicals, didn’t wear full coverings. Look up old pictures of Iran, or other repressive Hellholes BEFORE they became oppressive.

The court ruled on this one. Did they make the right call?

And should WE be considering laws like that HERE? Let us know in the comments.

Even reading this question will have some people needing to reach for their smelling salts. Those people need to read this. Stat.
