A clear separation of the state and religion, but the state can tell a religion what its women can wear? Nice!


Not in their own homes and places of worship they can do what they want as long as they are not coercing people.

It’s not hard to get your head around.

Why are we tolerating the intolerant?

Why are we bending over backwards for something >65% of the UK population don’t want and wants banned?


I see the burka and the hijab as akin to asking people to wear a yellow star.

It’s a political thing dressed up in theocratic rationale.

I’ve read the scripture and the teachings of the ‘scholars’. There is no way anyone can do that without seeing it for what it is and those ‘sistas’ who are doing it by choice are making fools of their sistas in Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Do the research.

YouGov April 2017 poll: 65% of pensioners would like to see the burqa and niqab banned. Only 26% of 18-24 year olds would like both to be banned. Percentage-point gap of 39.
Divided Britain.
Looks like it is another subject where over-65s feel strongly and not many under this age really care that much. Perhaps the problem is pensioners having a too easy life with too much time to worry about things that don't affect them.

Too easy an analysis look at the love island Brexit discussion most youngsters are utterly clueless on such matters which is why they don’t have an opionion. The ONS has also shown both with Brexit and with the last GE that they don’t vote much either.

I haven’t read the Koran. But the highlighted comment is comparing apples with oranges. There’s quite a difference between the gov’t forcing a group of people to identify themselves as in Nazi Germany and people making their own choice to wear a face covering.

I don’t really agree with the whole wearing of a burqa, but it’s not going to be stopped or helped by the gov’t banning it. It’d probably mean such women stay in doors all day instead, Is that the lesser of two evils?

The only people who will stop the burqa wearing are the Muslim women empowering themselves. Whilst I don’t think there’s been anything totally similar to burqa wearing, 100 years ago there was anti-women attitudes in this country in terms of covering up - not to the same degree we can agree.

I agree with a lot you write about religion. I have little time for it. I don’t know many people who actively partake in religious activity, most people I know identify as either atheist or agnostic. That’s an attitude which has come about over the previous 40 years as the population learns and educated themselves more easily. I’m of the opinion religion will continue dying out in the Western world over the next 50-100 years due to technology advancing itself and the whole thing being illogical and at odds with the modern world.

You’re not seriously trying to suggest the contestants of Love Island are in any way a representative sample of anything other than complete idiots?
