Comments on: French PM urges Muslims to reject “hijacked Islam” Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: hijabiheather Mon, 28 Jun 2010 21:00:32 +0000 Hm, maybe I should be banned from driving since I wear glasses to correct very poor vision – and glasses don’t do anything for peripheral (“lateral”) vision. But I seem to handle driving just fine, thank you.

If the niqab she wore did block her vision, fine, but just about none of the niqabs I’ve seen, and worn, affect one’s vision, peripheral or otherwise, at all. Covering one’s face does not require nor imply covering one’s eyes or impairing one’s sight.
