    Default Burka Ban in Denmark

    Conservatives: Ban the burka!

    The Conservative Party Integration Spokesman Naser Khader is calling for a ban on the burka or niqab in the public space.

    We dont want to see burkas in Denmark. We simply cant accept that some of our citizens walk around with their faces covered, says MP Naser Khader, a Syrian-Palestinian of extraction and the Conservative Partys recently-appointed integration spokesman.

    And we can't accept women who show all the men in the street their nakedness. So pitiful to watch it's like a war, get the war paint on then the clothes what sad creatures.

    The weather is usually bad, but there are some really nice places around the country.

    I can understand you don't want to visit a country with whose government you disagree with. I personally don't really want to visit Turkey since they banned Youtube.

    On topic, it's been mentioned in newspapers and media around Denmark that the total amount of women wearing Burka is so incredibly low, that it makes very little sense to waste valuable politicians' time on it. Apparently there's nothing better to do... *sigh*

    Naser Khader was arguing that the driving safety was at risk with women wearing burka driving... but as a journalist wrote this morning in one of the free newspapers "then if the Burka is a safety risk, the question is not whether or not she should be allowed to wear Burka, but whether or not she should be allowed to drive". Not in those exact words, but that was the general point.

    It's like saying:

    "Drunk people are a safety risk when driving a car. Therefore we must ban alcohol". The real point is - don't drink and drive.

    Maybe a weird comparison, but that's what I came up with.

    I always thought that one of the great benefits of traveling is a chance to get away from Internet, including Youtube.

    So, let us see you train of thought: "This is the country ruled by military under thin guise of 'democracy': whenever they do not like the elected party, they ban it or stage a coup d'etat. But that's ok. What really ticks me off that they BANNED YOUTUBE!!!"

    Abu Abdallah, I'm not sure what country you're speaking of, being ruled by the military under the guise of democracy.

    Besides, what's so different from someone stating they don't want to visit Denmark because some politicians are talking about banning the burka, to someone stating they don't want to visit Turkey because the government banned youtube?

    As I've also stated above, I don't agree with banning the burka. I think people should be able to wear whatever clothes they want.

    You are right, of course, that one of the great benefits of traveling is the chance to get away from your daily routine with job, TV, Internet and so on. But I wasn't implying what I'd be doing in Turkey, merely what my thoughts would be of the country I was visiting. And honestly, I probably exaggerated. I don't think the banning of Youtube would keep me away from Turkey.
