blasphemy?

As most Australian’s would know, the calling for a ban on the burqa is becoming a high rise debate in politics and even amongst the community.

But is the demand for the ban borderline blasphemy, or is it just a secure measure?

Australian Muslims are labelling the ban as a “political stunt”, stating that forbidding the burqa to be worn in public is un-Australian.

Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi thinks otherwise. 

“The veil is emerging as the preferred disguise of bandits and n’er do wells,” he states. [News.com.au]

Bernardi also claims that ban is necessary, in order for Muslim women to have more interaction with fellow Australians.

The burqa also poses serious issues for the justice system, where it has been used to escape jail sentences and punishments alike.     [Image: TheDiplomacist]
