ban the wearing of the burka in public places

We, the undersigned do declare that the muslim head dress known as the niqab be banned in the united kingdom. This item of clothing is not only a security risk because you cannot see who is underneath but also a divisive symbol of clothing and a means of a man to control women. No where in the Koran does it state that a muslim woman must cover head to foot, it does however say a woman should dress modestly to guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears. It is the muslim male that has twisted verses and forces a woman to dress this way. just ask yourself would a non muslim male be allowed to wear a balaclava in the street unchallenged by police even on a cold winters day?
