Dutch government backs burqa ban
The proposed burqa ban comes ahead of Dutch elections


The Dutch cabinet has backed a proposal by the country's immigration minister to ban Muslim women from wearing the burqa in public places.
The burqa, a full body covering that also obscures the face, would be banned by law in the street, and in trains, schools, buses and the law courts.

The cabinet said burqas disturb public order, citizens and safety.

The decision comes days ahead of elections which the ruling centre-right coalition is expected to win.

Assholes.

I certainly don't like the idea of a woman having to cover herself, but what she choses to do is her choice. Banning it is effectively banning these women from the streets because I know many won't (or can't) stop using it just because the damn government says they can't.

The main purpose of the Burqa is to obscure them in the "public" .. Is it not? Don't think they even wear them when they are not in public.

Immigration Minister .. Why him .. Are they immigrants? Anyway, I think it has more to do with their religion then Government? Could be that this is a perfect example of the "bring your ways with you" not working.

"The cabinet said burqas disturb public order, citizens and safety."

Think there was a guy in Canada who committed a crime and sneaked out of the Country using a burqa and family members passport. Could this be the reason for the ban?
