Comments on: Dutch may introduce burqa ban as early as 2011 Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Libertine Thu, 16 Dec 2010 21:48:50 +0000 One might argue that this burqa ban is long overdue and that this outfit symbolises non-interaction, non-integration and distance. One must find it impossible to start an introduction to someone whose eyes are hardly visible and if the eyes are visible it’s the outfit that stifles any introduction let alone conversation and friendship. This is precisely what some old gentleman used to say from years ago; ‘it’s not the West one should watch out for; they won’t take your land and freedom … but it is Islam, a political and religious stand which is altogether different from what everyone had known that one should worry about’. And now it seems Geert Wilders must have seen the light, so to speak for no one like him have said that Islam is ‘incompatible with freedom of discussion and speech’ even though politicians are witnessing and seeing the obvious.
