Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson has been criticised for saying Muslim women wearing burkas "look like letter boxes" and for comparing them to "bank robbers" - prompting calls for him to apologise and be expelled from the Conservative Party.

But Mr Johnson's comments, which some believe will aggravate Islamophobic tensions in the UK, have also highlighted some confusion about what a burka is - as the veil revealing just the eyes is, in fact, known as a niqab.

So what actually are the differences between the various types of Islamic dress for women and what governs their choices?

Why?
Brainwashing.
Submission.
Fear.
Culture.
Religion.
Fashion.
One or some or all.

Shouldn't the Burka be banned in Australia purely for Security Reasons?

Source:      The Daily Telegraph (link)      
Quote :
A Sky News ReachTEL poll released on Thursday showed that 57 per cent of Australians want the burqa banned with 19 per cent opposed. This shouldn’t surprise anyone in the parliament — Coalition, Labor or Green — because similar outright bans, or restrictions in places like schools or government buildings, have already been imposed by other governments in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Chad, Austria, Cameroon and many others.


They have been seen the horrors of migrations of so called 'refugees' into their once Sovereign Nations, why can't we learn from their history......their mistakes...........are we so ignorant to need to experience the same results here before we  take our own security seriously, before we are held hostage as they are, in their own lands?

When the Left doesn't have any valid arguments against a ban of all face coverings in public, they will resort to NAME CALLING.......

When they do they have lost the argument, unless you.....the Citizens of our Great Land....buckle under to their threatening pressure.....don't let being called an Islamophobe, or even a Racist cause you to ignore FACTS & COMMON SENSE , & buckle under to these empty phrases designed/made-up to intimidate you....because if you do they win, & they, those wishing you harm, will eventually subjugate & dominate you, & everything you love.

I find it interesting that those who talk the most about Freedom of Speech seek to ban the speech of people who talk about things they find distasteful.

Those that talk about Freedom, seek to ban people who exercise by wearing clothing they find distasteful.

Ah, such is the joys of inconsistencies. Hey?

Isn't that what people "from the left" do? Aren't you trying to do exactly that yourself?

Where have I suggested that I want people silenced, Neferti? Mmmm?

Where have I suggest that I want people to be prevented from wearing what they like? Mmmm?

Unlike you, I actually act out my belief in Freedom of Speech, in Freedom. I do not demand anything of others than that they treat people decently, without discrimination on the basis of their speech/"race"/ethnicity/religion/gender/sexual preference/etc.

It seems that you have created (yet another) forum where people are allowed to insult other people, where people are allowed to hate people because they fear them, despite never having met them and so on. How about instead, we see some decency, give people a "fair go", be a little "laid back" as Australians are supposed to or is that just a little bit difficult? Mmmm?

Forgotten your use of ad hominem argument? Labeling another poster a "troll" is an insult. Tsk, tsk.

In your case its a FACT.
You need to stop insulting, ridiculing, flaming, using ad hom, and lying about people in almost every post you write.
You need to stop dragging topics off topic with your personal attacks.
You are a TROLL.
