Muslim Canadian Congress spokesman calls the niqab (full veil) “nonsense” and says garments designed to cover a woman’s face are “medieval” and “misogynist” symbols of extremism with no basis in Islam.
Canadian Muslim lobby group urged Ottawa to ban the burka and the niqab. The Muslim Canadian Congress called on the federal government to prohibit the two garments in order to prevent women from covering their faces in public — a practice the group said has no place in a society that supports gender equality. “To cover your face is to conceal your identity,” describing the issue as a matter of public safety, since concealing one’s identity is a common practice for criminals.
If a lot more Muslims spoke out this way, they would be less feared and more accepted into Western society. I have yet to hear similar calls in the USA. In fact, Barack Hussein Obama encourages the wearing of these kinds of garbage bags on Muslim women’s heads.
