Posted on April 11, 2011 by Marivel GuzmanIf the authorities of any country can get away with the Ban of the Niqab,Burqa, which is an expression of religion’s beliefs, then the government can can away if they wish to ban Sombrero, Turbans, mantellinas, yarmulke or a kippah or even glasses.
Just think about it, we as a society must not “imposed” our beliefs on others, being religious, political or any other kind.
If I allowed a group of men on women (sitting government) to decide what they think is good for 1 million or billion people,then we as a society are exposing ourselves to end up in a fascist society. To impair my ability to decide what to wear is the same as to impair my ability to decide what to say, or to impair my ability to decide what to eat. You could change the subject line to what ever word is that you want and applies to everyone of them.
Don’t allow yourself to be victim of radical minds that are working in their interest and not in the interest of society. We have come long way fighting for the “Rights OF BE OR NOT TO BE”……
Please show your support for the citizens of France that are facing a draconian law that is going to put their liberties in danger. Support our sisters in France to retain their freedom to wear or not to wear a religious accessory.

The ban on the niqab (full face veil) is due to come into force in
France on Monday 11 April. This denies Muslim women freedom of religious and cultural expression and the right to choose what they wear. Free and democratic societies should allow people to express their faith and culture, and women to dress however they choose.
The only beneficiary of this ban and the Islamophobic campaign that has accompanied it is the fascist Front National, which recently polled 36% of the vote where it stood candidates and 11% across the country, in France’s regional elections. There is a danger that FN leader Marine Le Pen could finish second in next year’s presidential elections.
Although there are no proposals to introduce such legislation in Britain, the ban on the niqab in France has provoked Islamophobic discussions and campaigns here. UKIP and the BNP have called for a ban on the burqa and niqab. There have also been racist attacks on Muslim women wearing head scarves and face veils
