The proposed legislation bans the niqab, not the buqa. The objection is to the face cover which hinders identification. Criminals and terrorists could disguise themselves with the burqa & niqab. There have already been a few incidents.
Fitra, including the hijab & burqa serve as warning signs to alert us to the presence of Islamic supremacists. While France and Georgia are wise to ban garments that prevent identification, banning the burqa & hijhab is functionally equivalent to amputating a snake's rattles or painting over a skunk's stripes.
Phoebe Maltz Bovy invokes "the dignity-of-Muslim-women " , apparently ignorant of the fact that they have none. Islamic law requires that Muslim women suffer clitoridectomy and deems them to be defcient in religion and intelligence.
The Profit said that Muslim's wives are like prisoners, having no control over their lives. He also said that women are the majority in the fire.
Of course, the hijab is a major source of the Muslima's dignity, or is it? Is it really about modesty and piety or something less dignified?
What can be less dignified than open defecation in the desert? Moe gave his wives permission to go out to the desert at night "for their personal needs". Umar, who was campaigning for head covering, spyed on them and harassed Sauda. Here is the sorry story in graphic novel form. Note that it is documented. I have linked the relevant ahadith below.
From that video we learn that the hijab is about open defecation and Islam is all about getting Moe what he wanted: sex.
It is Islam, not the burqa & hijab that should be banned. It should be banned because its mission is mercenary: accrual of ransom, tribute & spoils for Moe's personal emolument and its method is martial. I now present proof of that fact.
