    Burqua - Yes or No?

    There have been endless debates whether Muslim immigrant women in Europe should be allowed to wear Burquas. Do you think they should be allowed or not? Why/why not?

    I thought they wore burkas as a courtesy... so the rest of us wouldn't have to look at them. One circumstance where they should definitely be allowed to wear them is on the flight back to the Middle East.

    I think that they ought to be able to wear them in any situation in which a European woman would be legally allowed to walk around wrapped up in a blanket. When a European would not be able to, for instance when voting or maybe going through airport security, they ought to be subject to the same rules.

    When you emigrate to another country to provide a better life for your family, in doing so you are kind of admitting that there is a lot about the culture of that country that is better than that of your own. If you can't deal with the rules, then go back home. Why is it that when European or American women are in middle eastern countries they have to be covered up, but when they are in our countries they do not respect our culture?

    As long as they live here in my country i dont want them to wear it, i cant wear a hat on school but muslims can.

    So NO!! if they want to wear it they can go back to where they came from.
    If christ is the answer then what is the question?

    As long as they are living there voluntary marks of separation and tribal identity are to be encouraged.

    I think it's up to them. Jews can wear their funny skullcaps when they want. I think Muslims should be able to wear burquas too.

    I agree with the previous post about tribal identity. I think it's important that people recognise these people as being foreign, as opposed to just another ingredient in the melting pot.

    They should be allowed to wear them, but not forced to like in their native Muslim countries.

    They are not forced to in their native countries. Sometimes I find that the level of miseducation on this is ridiculous. Some very religious families do force them to but most families give them a choice. There are two girls in hijabs where I work and they wear them purely by their own choice. If they didn't want to, they wouldn't be wearing it. I met a woman from Dubai, no hijab, no burqua.

    Freydis: England is not (yet) a strictly-Islamic country, and neither is the United Arab Emirates, therefore they are not forced to follow Islamic teachings because they are not enforced by the government.

    The UAE is a Muslim country, afiak, but it isn't run by theocracy. One of the girls in question is Pakistani who grew up in Kuwait. Your original point didn't make such concessions.

    England is not a Muslim state and never will be.
