Belgium Bans People Wearing Burqas in Public

The vote in Parliament for a nationwide ban on Islamic clothes or veils that do not allow the wearer to be fully identified was almost unanimous.

Belgium is set to become the first ever country in Europe to ban the burqa being worn in public places.

The vote in Parliament for a nationwide ban on Islamic clothes or veils that do not allow the wearer to be fully identified was almost unanimous.

The full-face niqab and burqa worn by some Muslim women are not a mandatory requirements of Islam, but a personal choice.

People found flouting the new law could be given a fine of more than $30 or even be faced with a week in jail.

Vice president of the Muslim Executive of Belgium, Isabelle Praile, warned that the new law could be the start of a slippery slope.

"Today it's the full-face veil, tomorrow the veil, the day after it will be Sikh turbans and then perhaps it will be mini-skirts."

She went on to say that "the wearing of a full-face veil is part of the individual freedoms" protected by Belgian, European and international rights laws.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Greeks & Armenians in Turkey, Oh My!

Wherever you find minorities in whatever country,

you are going to find discrimination against those

who are not in the mainstream (the USA included).

Before 9/11, any discrimination against Muslims in

the US was nothing compared to the discrimination

against non-Muslims in Islamic countries. After 9/11,

there was more parity but we could argue forever

(and have in VJ) as to which side is more to blame.

Since 9/11, the attitude toward security and requirements

for security put into place by almost every country in the

world has changed and grown by leaps and bounds.

Burqa Law

According to the BBC,

The law would ban any clothing that obscures the identity of the wearer in places like parks and on the street.

No-one voted against it.The law now goes to the Senate, where it may face challenges over its wording, which may delay it.

If passed, the ban would be the first move of its kind in Europe.

This is clearly a law designed to enhance security and says nothing about the religion or ethnicity of the wearer.

The fact that most of the wearers may in fact belong to a particular group

is of no interest and not mentioned.

It is inconvenient to honest Muslim women who live & work legally in Belgium,

but it is MORE CONVENIENT for the greater good, which is served by

preventing men and women who would disguise themselves under a

false pretense of "religious freedom" in order to conceal illegal immigration

status or a considerable amount of explosives. Don't say it can't happen

in Belgium, because there is the potential for that everywhere.

Those hurt by those acts are not only the perceived targets but

ALSO the honest and legal Muslims who would have nothing to do

with acts of terrorism. Such a law protects them more than it hurts them.

With every successful terrorist act they increasingly become targets

for equally unjust retaliation and acts of discrimination.

In the US Muslim women are often seen in head scarves, which

they wear to honor their religion. Their faces are clearly visible

and this law would not prevent them from doing that. I have

rarely ever seen either a face-obscuring veil or a full-length burqa

in New York, but the number I have seen would be in the small

ten-thousandths of a percent compared to all the women I have

seen. That is just one more reason that the law is for the greater good.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Perhaps this will start the mass exodus to Malaysia?

Good for Belgium !

I'd be interested to read about what the local imam/muallahs have to say about this, in the next prayer session.

There should be more debate and understanding about what the word 'modesty' really means. One can be and behave modestly in a bikini, one can be and behave wantonly wearing a full veil.

A woman should not be at risk for sexual predation due to what she is wearing, nor by how she is behaving and there should be no religious leaders promoting anything that contradicts that.

No plans to go any time soon.

Even if they are 100% of the population,

that doesn't justify hiding your face.

It's a question of security; cultural sensitivity must take a back seat.

If there was a culture advocating showing one's genitals do we

have to explain that away as a question of civil rights?

Here is a question for woman. Why do men tend to where white (which reflects sun light and is therefore cooler) and yet it seems everything woman wear is black (which must be hot)

Where do you live that this is true?

Black isn't see through like white is.

Yeah I can imagine it's hella hot.

I'm referencing mostly Arab countries and some Persian.

In hot countries white reflects light; burqas are often black and the womenfolk are mostly

expected to stay indoors so the black absorbing sunlight doesn't affect them as much.

Also black is to make them appear not to be "sexual" while in public.

While in the privacy of their family compound they wear bright colors in whatever

style that pleases them.

More liberated Muslim women show their faces & wear stylish/expensive scarves.
