Are you for or against a hijab, burqa and niqab ban?

I've seen several politicians in different European countries talking about a ban. It's illegal in some European countries to wear burqa and niqab in public, but hijab is still legal. Other countries is considering banning it's [All of them] use in school, jobs and other public places. I'm wondering what your opinion is.

Here's my opinion:
I thinks people should be allowed to wear what they wants to in their spare time, but jobs and schools should be allowed to have some dress codes and have policy about being religion and politically neutral in clothes. I'm not saying it should be mandatory, but just an option for workplaces etc. if they wants to. Just because I thinks it's fine with a dress code doesn't mean I'm for a school uniform in school.

  • I have mixed opinions about this. On one hand, I fully support everyone's right to follow whatever religion they want, and clothing is sometimes a big part of religion. So due to religious freedom, that should not be banned. On the other hand, from what I have heard, the burqa and niqab are not actually requirements in Islam. I believe those are simply more of a cultural thing in certain Middle Eastern countries (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) so in that case, it shouldn't be treated the same as clothing that is strictly religious.

    I can see how completely covering your face can be a security issue in public. I know in many places masks and other things that cover the face are not allowed so it would make sense to ban them for the sake of consistency with other laws.

  • Well, obviously I'm NOT for a ban. Because that would infringe on someone's right to wear these pieces of clothing if they truly wanted to. My opinion on the hjibab and similar articles of clothing? Outright female oppression. These women in these countries that have a belief in wearing such clothing are usually not as free as the men. They are beholding on the wishes of the man and these women are repressed. Many women claim this to be true. How can you cover up your body and face and not be oppressed? It's to control these women. When it comes to workplace policy, the employer can decide what constitutes proper attire and uniform. Just like tattoos must be covered, some instances hijabs must be removed.

  • I think Hijab and Dopatta are completely fine.. they do not look unprofessional or anything.. but I am against Niqab/burka.. it's not even mandatory in Islam to cover your face... so I don't know why those women do it.. maybe they're forced to do it.. I am all for 'people should be allowed to wear whatever they want'' but Niqab/burka is something which should be banned.. it takes away one's identity

    • Yeah it's a law in some countries like Saudi Arabia.

    • Show All
    • @ElissaDido Well it is in some countries.

    • Covering of the head is the practice.. not covering your entire face

  • I am not a fan of religion - certainly not Islam, so my *personal* opinion is that it shouldn't even be worn.

    However, this is about banning an article of clothing, and religion or not, I'm against that thinking only because if you tag on the reason that it's religion, then it's bigotry - even if you think it's well-meaning for the woman. If it's banned because society thinks it knows best, then that's dictatorship.

    So my country has banned the burqa, and normally I'd be thinking 'great, I'm on board' - not so fast. Telling someone what to wear or not wear (granted it's not at work, and places like airports and banks can still insist you show your face) isn't right, and I stand by that even though I personally don't agree with the religion.

    It would be no different than Christians or pro-lifers telling me what to do or how to think because of their "well-meaningness". Besides, if it isn't the burqa, what next? There will ultimately be something to ban, and it's the same old - people trying to run other people's lives.

    If rules are put in to place such as showing one's face for security reasons at a bank, or alternate dressing for work or school, there shouldn't be a ban on *any*thing, and I think that's my point more than my disdain for all religions. If you want to believe it, go ahead. If you want to wear it, be my guest. Don't tell me what to do, I won't tell you what to do.

    I think we actually have more success by simply living better lives and being more compassionate if we want to influence the best from others. To me, telling people they're arrested for wearing something just isn't the answer.

  • I suspect the head coverings that most religions used to wear but now mostly still used by Muslims was not for modesty or religious reasons but to stop the spread of lice thousands of years ago

    As for the face coverings that's piss taking... in Syria the women are ripping them off and burnin them but Muslim women are wearin them to stir up west that's all it is to piss us off... should be banned completely

      So you're saying that Europe is the morally depraved society that is in their perfectly functioning state (where men and women get equal rights, women aren't killed for dating whole their family sees as the 'wrong' person', etc..) because they do NOT embrace religious values?

      &Muslim countries are morally fucked up because they DO embrace religious values?
      Hm. Seems like you've understood this whole issue as a bit of damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    • No...

      I'm saying European societies are good because they don't currently embrace religious values (back when they did they burned people at the stake). They are peaceful and have good values because religion rakes a backseat in European society.

  • Banning for security purposes is not logical because still a people may cover all of their body but may not wear a hijab. So just because someone is wearing a hijab doesn't mean that that person is hiding something I think people should respect to each other's clothing especially if it's for religious purposes.

  • I'm a muslim myself, I think niqab and burqa should be banned since that's cultural and not related to religion (It's what people made up with the time) and I think it's totally nonsense to cover up your face, because that's like hiding your whole identity. As for the rest, I think it's alright and it shouldn't be banned.

  • Meh, I'm for people doing what they want. If what they want is to cover their hair or cover their face or their whole body, then cool. I guess in some situations, like at airports or maybe at the bank or something, it's important to be able to see someone's identity so in that case, maybe they can be taken aside into a private room so the identity can be verified by one woman or somthing like that, but other than that, sure, wear what you want.

  • Everyone should be allowed to wear what they want.
    And our most important amendment is the first amendment, which gives us freedom of religion, of course as long as it does not violate another's rights. Someone wearing a hijab, burqa, or niqab has no effect on another person whatsoever, and it's religious wear. Not sure why there's even a talk about banning it, it does nothing to you.

  • I'd say only ban the ones that are covering the face, and the ones that are very baggy, where I can potentially hide dangerous stuff underneath.
    I don't care if it's just their head that's covered, but the face has to absolutely be visible. And they shouldn't wear baggy dresses, floorlength.

    Though these outfits seems strange to me, I will not go around trying to tell people what they can or cannot wear, especially with clothing that is so important to them.

Your profile says you are from Pakistan, so you as a south Asian are more then aware that if a woman were to wear revealing clothing in certain areas in your region not only would she get judged but probably stoned or killed. Same applies for other "conservative" countries, even in the Middle East. We want to set expectations on conservative clothing for visiting foreigners and expect them to follow, but we refuse to respect others expectations. Don't be a hypocrite.

  • Niqabs/burqa should be banned.

    If you ban themthough, they'll find something else. For example, I saw a video of these niqabis insisting they'll wear surgical masks in public should a ban niqab/burqa ban be in place. What then?

    You could make it far reaching. Such as, no face coverings in public spaces unless required to in the course/scope of employment. That would be better. But still doesn't capture the essence of why they want them banned. It would still cause problems too.

    • That is extremely bad territory.
      If you want to protest or go somewhere without all kind of camera recognision now you have the option to wear a mask and be anonymous when you want or need to be. It is something that protects you. Making facial wear illegal serves as a disarmment of the people as they can then be identified and taken away during or after these protests.

      The world is changimg and perhaps the governament in your country will one day act not so kind to a protest. Then you are out of luck as being seen with facial wear would get you fined or jailed.

    • @sawno actually it's already illegal to protest with face covering. So it has literally no impact on that

    • It actually is over there? Thats something that needs to be reversed asap tgen.

  • I think that it shouldn't be outright banned but I think that there should be workplace rules that allow certain religious symbols to be worn and that people can wear whatever they want to in private or at their place of worship but not in public unless it does not obscure the face e. g. the hijab, dupatta and possibly the chandor.
    I think that the hijab and dupatta should be allowed to be worn in schools and in the workplace because religion is part of someone's identity; fully banning the religious symbols would be like going up to a Christian and telling them that they cannot wear a cross because it's a religious symbol or going up to a Jewish man and telling him that he is not allowed to wear a skullcap (if he was an Orthodox Jew he would refuse as it would be against the teachings of the Torah).

    I'm not against Hijab because I'm considering wearing it someday and many of the females in my family, including my Mom, wear it. I think that in some contexts Niqab/Burqas should be banned. For example, in the hospital, at school, University etc. But i don't really mind them wearing it oustide, like i seriously don't care.
    I'm actually considering wearing the Hijab because it attracts me.

  • I would probably vote in favor of a ban on burqas and niqabs. I don't have a problem with hijabs.
    As for work places and schools: I'm very strong about secularism. ANY type of religious symbol should be forbidden in public jobs and schools. That includes hijabs, crucifixes, jewish kipas, turbans etc. It's just appropriate in those places. It's like wearing a t-shirt of your favorite political party when you work at the civil registry office or you're a teacher. You can do that in your free time but not when you're working.

    • @Crazy123456 Well, I think culture is far more than a "norm". I know what you mean by that but I consider it... richer than just social propriety.
      Also, culture is rather a set of practices than a belief, which makes it more likable to me. Anyone can have beliefs but if you want to bring yours into public life and affect other people who may not share them, the beliefs should be provable. Unfortunately, this is not possible with religious beliefs and/or claims.

  • I would be pro-ban for clothing that completely obscures the face. Religious clothing also has no place in the workplace.

    The reason?

    While I acknowledge the need for one's freedom to wear what they want, there also needs to be a balance in terms of what is acceptable in the society you live in. If I were to immigrate to a different country, I would have no expectation that the society that I immigrate to should adapt to me. It is the other way around. When you go to a foreign land, you adapt to the customs of that place.

    In western societies, it is fundamentally important to see one's face whether it is in a private, work or business setting. Just as shaking hands as a greeting is a standard custom, so is seeing one's face and smiling. Workplace clothing like suit and tie are important in one's image. You would never go to a job interview wearing dirty/shabby clothes because you know it reflects poorly on you. So too does clothing that does not conform to the norms of this society... that includes religious clothing that is customary in a country across the planet.

    In such instances, I favor the balance to lean towards society rather than the individual.

  • I am not against it but as soon as a large group of Muslims try to use violence to get others they should immediately be kicked out of the country. Freedom of practice goes both ways. That's what a lot of Muslims don't understand they want to be tolerated and tolerated, but they don't know how to accept or even tolerate others. I am only against the niqab when it comes to ID and airport security checking for common sense reasons. You need to know that person is who they say they are.

    • Burka is covering the whole person, but niqab is covering everything except their eyes. Muslims who's immigrants can easily gets kicked out of the country if they've done anything illegal. But what are we supposed to do with regular citizens who convert to Islam and does something illegal, or with second and third generations immigrants? They're citizen, so it's a bit different then.

    • Yes the burka shouldn't be allowed either. Just showing the eyes isn't enough either. You should have to show your whole face. Yeah when I was speaking about Muslims I was referring culturally from the Muslims from Arab countries. And its more of a country law situation. When an immigrant comes into another country they have the right to be deported cause its like hey we don't want any other extra problems being created that our own country already has to take him or her back.

  • I live in a large town in England with a high Muslim population. As you said, there has been a lot of political discussion recently about banning Burqa etc. So I wanted to test something. Myself and a female Muslim friend walked into a shop; She was wearing a Niqab (Full-body coverage), and I walked into the shop wearing a black-hooded jumper and a balaclava showing only my eyes.

    As you can imagine (and rightly so) i was stopped and asked to remove it for security reasons, however my Muslim friend was not asked to remove her Niqab. I asked the security guard to explain himself as both of us had our faces covered.
    He said because she's a Muslim she's allowed to wear it. I think that's a terrible way to think.
    People should not be allowed to circumvent safety/security rules just because of their religion (any religion).
    Imagine if I had gone into a bank wearing a balaclava? I'd probably be shot! But wearing a Niqab is fine? It doesn't make any sense! So I vote that you should ban them In public places, however they can wear them in their own home if they choose to.

    It isn't a religious obligation to wear any of those items, it's done to identify separately from the majority of the population.

But in terms of a girl wearing a hijab, it's the girl's choice to wear a hijab, the parents can't force her. What you see in places like Saudi Arabia is simply a dictatorship country that doesn't value women, that does not represent what Islam is.

I am for banning the niqab/burka, but honestly, I don't think it matters that much because I read somewhere that in Canada at least, there are only a few dozen women who fully cover themselves, and in most European countries it's only a few hundred, so I don't think it's that much of an issue [yet].

All of that stuff is either man and women is only ok, or everything else is okay. you can't be in favor of one outfit just because it looks less threatning. thats a complete biased cracker fear-mongering ideology. all or none you fucking wimps

  • If you're going to ban those, you then have to ban every conceivable Halloween mask, every conceivable ski-mask... basically anything that ocvers the face.

  • I'm for banning all forms of Islamic religious garments.
    They are all forms of oppression and I'm all for the state making the decision for these women if they are too brainwashed to make it themselves.

    • Wow oppression!! LoL I didn't face such oppression.. media criticise this islamic tradition.. they r presenting the view that Muslim women are being oppressed n forced to wear it. this concept is totally bullshit..

    • @ErumMalik They are literally forced to do it, it is the law you know.

    • I don't know about Saudia Arabia much maybe they would b strict regarding this issue but here in Pakistan there is no such law to cover head n face.. girls wear whatever they want..

  • One of the women where I work wears a burqa (actually a niqab, I guess, since her eyes are visible). It seems silly to me, but it doesn't bother anyone. And from what little I can see of her, we're not missing out on anything.

  • If a woman chooses to not wear hijab or burqa she is a whore. Even if she isn't muslim, she should cover herself, girls like attention because they want the Dick thats why they dress like they work the corner.

  • It should be illegal to mask your identity in public spaces so that includes motorbike helmets, balclavas, masks, kkk hoods etc but the rest of those traditional woman's dresses and head coverings should be allowed as an expression of faith/culture.

  • I'm not for an outright ban, but it needs to follow the same standards as any other headwear.
    If a hat wouldn't be considered acceptable, neither should a turban, burka or whatever.

  • It represents a culture of oppression, sexism and lack of freedom. I don't want that in my country. To me, it's like walking around dressed as a KKK member.

  • they shouldn't be banned but in places where a terror attack is a likely thing just make them show their face if they have the burka or niquab to security then let them put it back down

  • i dont think it should be banned because i believe in the freedom to believe in any religion and follow it any ways you like. however i think the hijab is completely immoral and should not be praised but spit upon
