They're trying to introduce a veil ban in the UK, France is debating one in their parliament now, and in Spain, which has a HUGE Muslim community, some places have already enacted them. The jist is typically the same - it is unlawful for a woman to leave the house in a veil.
Is it right or fair to do that to Muslim women? Would it ok to forbid Amish women from covering their hair in public or forbidding Jewish men to wear yarmulkes?

I think everyone should around naked- after all, isn't that the way their god created them? That way, there would be no argument about clothing.

I don't know if it should be banned, but I hate them. I think veils and head coverings are fine and even beautiful, but I really don't like it when women have their face covered. Still I believe people should do what they want so I don't know if I would have them banned.
