L'Islam n'est pas la burqa! Il ne faut pas mélanger!
Le Sarkozysme est devenu synonyme de communication destinée à intoxiquer l'opinion. Les musulmans ne veulent pas que l'Islam soit instrumentalisé. La burqa pose un problème de sécurité, certes, mais il y a d'autre moyens que l'on peut trouver pour stopper l'usage de cette robe a cagoule!
The national idendity debate is allowing racist and Islamophobic views to masquerade as 21st century patriotism.
I dislike the burqa because it compromises the public safety. The Quran does not ask women to wear the burqa. Islamic scholars say that the full face veil is a cultural relict and not an Islamic religious duty.
The burqa is not an Islamic duty but I don't think that banning it is the answer! The debates must come from within the religion, not imposed from without! We should not, we must not denigrate another culture!
We should engage the community in a Socratic dialogue about the burqa and educate the young generation.
I respect the women who have chosen to wear the veil (which has nothing to do with the burqa). They believe that in keeping their physical attributes out of the public is a sign of high discipline. We need to respect their choice. They are free to cover their head and their body if they wish so. That is their choice and we need to respect it. As long as we can see their face, then where is the problem!!
Now, in France, a woman who wears the niqab (burqa) can be taken to a police station and she can be fined 205$ and ordered to attend re-education classes.
Mais que la loi contre la burqa devienne de" l'hijabphobie", la ça devient un probleme! L'interdiction du voile n'est que la manifestation d'une dérive droitière de la République à un an des présidentielles. Sarkozy et l'UMP cherchent désespérément à enrayer la percée de Marine Le Pen dans les sondages.
