- UK Prime Minister
- United Kingdom
An MP has called the wearing of burkas the religious equivalent of “going round with a paper bag over your head."
In a parliamentary debate, Conservative MP Philip Hollobone said it was “offensive” for women to cut off face-to-face contact with other people. The Kettering MP said he had “huge sympathy” with those who wanted a ban on face-covering veils in public. None of the three large UK parties back a ban, with ministers saying it would not be “British” to bar them.
I thought I would invite readers to petition on the matter because I believe that the majority in the UK do not approve wearing of burkas on this basis plus the fact that it has no relevance or place in British Society and demonstrates a disregard for Britishness and the British way of life, and, furthermore, a refusal to integrate and follow customs of this land.
That The Public Wearing Of The Burka Be Forbidden In The United Kingdom.
