Burka – Arguments in Disguise

There are an awful lot of reasons to outlaw burka, niqab and hijab. Gradually the arguments against these Muslim female garments have become so abundant that it all seems rather suspicious. At first we were mainly told that those clothes were oppressive to women, but lately the list of all their damaging effects is constantly getting longer. Even road safety has been mentioned and whoever strains his brain sufficiently will surely be able to spot more points.

Certain things we dislike without much rational reason. Maybe they are strange and foreign and disturb our quiet habits, but being enlightened people we cannot accept such groundless aversions and hastily we produce rational explanations of our irrationality. We don’t like strangers, we don’t like Muslims, but we don’t like to admit it.
