Ban the Burkha
We the undersigned petition the Government to follow the example set by other European countries such as France and Belgium and ban the wearing of the Burka, Niqab in all public places. This relates to all garments which cover the face at least partially.
The Burka prevents identification and creates difficulties in some professions such as teaching as well as in the public domain. It can also be seen as a symbol of division and hostility between communities.
In a modern and free society it is wrong that women are still allowed to be oppressed in the name of religion.
This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:
There is already an e-petition about this issue.
Do you support or oppose this petition?
