Summary: 

Morocco has banned the production and sale of burqa full-face Muslim veils, apparently for security reasons

When the infidels try to ban the veil for security reasons, it is deemed racist, “Islamophobic” and/or xenophobic. Since Morocco is proceeding with a ban, perhaps pusillanimous Western leaders who are petrified of being deemed “Islamophobic” can give themselves permission to impose a burqa ban in the interests of homeland security; after all, is Morocco “Islamophobic”?

Summary: 

An Oxford-based Muslim cleric has called for Britain to ban the burqa, arguing that the wearing of a face veil is not Islamic but the product of a misogynistic culture. He further argues: Since the burqa and niqab are ancient habits and not mentioned in the Koran, it is, therefore, pre-Islamic, not Koranic and ipso facto un-Muslim.” “The niqab is a tradition and has nothing to do with Islam.” Taj Hargey is being less than honest.

West Midlands Police Chief Constable was blasted after he refused to rule out allowing female recruits to wear the face-covering garments. He said that his force “would have to consider” any requests to wear the burka, which covers both the face and body, and the full-face niqab, which leaves the eye area clear. The decision was met with outrage from MPs and public figures and was even slammed as a bad idea by the Muslim Council of Britain. 

But today, Leicestershire Police's Chief Constable said he would also consider Muslim WPCs’ wishes to wear full Islamic dress while on duty.

Why I, as a British Muslim woman, want the burkha banned from our streets

Shopping in Harrods last week, I came across a group of women wearing black burkhas, browsing the latest designs in the fashion department.

The irony of the situation was almost laughable. Here was a group of affluent women window shopping for designs that they would never once be able to wear in public. Yet it's a sight that's becoming more and more commonplace. In hardline Muslim communities right across Britain, the burkha and hijab - the Muslim headscarf - are becoming the norm.

Summary: 

 According to state-run Fars news agency on October 6, the reactionary mullah Alam al-Hoda, Friday prayer leader in Mashhad (northeast Iran) in a meeting with commanders of the police and security forces called for more repression against women and girls and said: “The presence of an unveiled or improper veiled woman on the streets should be viewed in your eyes as enemy’s infantry and as the subject of your (suppressive) operations. You cannot be negligent in dealing with this issue otherwise we will be defeated.

Summary: 

Nearly ten years ago MP Jack Straw pointed out the growing number of women wearing the veils in his constituency of Blackburn.
