Belgian burka ban

Belgian lawmakers pass burka ban

BBC: Belgium's lower house of parliament has voted for a law that would ban women from wearing the full Islamic face veil in public. 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. Only around 30 women wear this kind of veil in Belgium, out of a Muslim population of around half a million >>>

I just can imagine what

by Bavafa on

I just can imagine what sort of reaction there would be if they had decided to ban Yarmulke or the long coats/hair orthodox Jews wear. Well any harsh reaction would have been justified and in my opinion racist as this one is. I believe there ought to be a law against forcing such covers (Burka or otherwise) but if it is done voluntarily and as ones conviction, then its ban is just as wrong as forcing one to wear it.

Hejab is not a personal choice for many

by MM on

Hejab is a state imposed mandate, e.g., in Muslim countries, and many women are subjugated in wearing this hejab.  If hejab is a personal choice, then women in Muslim countries should be able to kick the habit.  Similarly, while I support personal choice in wearing or not wearing hejab, it is the Islamists who have created a situation where hejab is being prohibited because of security reasons.

Hejab is a Jewish thing anyways.  In a National Geographic special, I saw that the head-cover for women was "invented" in small Jewish communities of the ancient world as a direct responce to the 7th (thou shall not commit adultery) and the 10th (thou shall not covet ....; .... ; covet your neighbor's wife) commandments. 

Like many other rituals, hejab was imitated after Prophet Mohammad, whose wife and daughter did not wear hejab.  Meanwhile, all these Islamists refer to the Noor Sureh as justification for hijab, which is hogwash.


Q

absolutely RACIST!

by Q on

Kadivar, wrong again.

This is a personal choice, it does not hurt anybody else. It's a cheap pander to the right wing, anti-immigration Euro-trash.

This is actually good for Islamist extremists, it's going bite both France and Belgium hard in the ass!

All Islamist activist have to do is force the authorities hand. Once a dozen or so good law-abiding Muslim women are arrested and put on trial for breaking this so-called "law" with well-publicized cases, the liberal outrage will cause so much backlash that it will actualy futher Islamicize Europe. It will give the Muslims the moral upper hand. That's fine, these bigoted governments deserve it.

Yes, put women in Jail and orphan their children over your bigotry and intolerance!

Just watch Kadivar, it will happen. It's already in the works as we speak.

Racist Bastards!

by payam s on

How come when Belgium, France, Germany, England all the other racist imperialists were colonizing muslim lands in Asia, Africa, etc. along with the rest of the world, they weren't applying the same standards on themselves as they are on the immigrants. They conquered, they raped, decimated, robbed, burned, ENSLAVED, mutilated, murdered, TERRORIZED and imposed their authority and culture upon the ENTIRE world and sucked it dry. Now the rest of the world is coming to get what is theirs, what was robbed from them through colonialism. The entirety of Europe and north america belongs to the "third world". This is not necessarily anti-Islamic, the trends that are appearing around the world suggest a rise of fascism in a form of racist ANTI-IMMIGRANT movement. Immigrants from around the world are migrating to the same countries that colonized them for centuries. We see the same in the US against the Mexican immigrants who were impoverished through America's economic colonization of Mexico and the entire Latin America for more than half a century. The same in Europe with muslim and African immigrants migrating to France, Belgium, and Scandanavia.

This is for all ya ignorant racist idiots leaving stupid comments.

The chickens are comin home to roost you F***ing fascists. Get used to it.

The Begians are so wrong!

by shahabshahab on

Have you seen the women who wear the Hijab or Burka? If the Beligains only knew what they looked like, they would pay to keep these women behind veils!!

But seriously, this is their country. Begians have a right to know who is behind that dirty smelly  piece of cloth. 


azadi5

if they don't like it, get out

by azadi5 on

well, they can always go back to wherever they came from and wear that curtain till they die. They should ban this crap in north america as well.

It's a cultural issue not a religious one

by Marjan Zahed Kindersley on

Which is why so many are fed up with the lies.

The fact is that millions of Indonesian Muslims don't waft around in black tents.

Religious people shouldn't be discriminated against in any way, but they should stop expecting to be above the law(s) that apply to the rest of us lesser mortals.
