Denmark has become “the latest European country to ban the Islamic full-face veil in public spaces in a move slammed by human rights campaigners as ‘a violation of women’s rights.'”
This is the real violation of women’s rights:
(Quran 24:31) And tell the believing women to reduce of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.
If a woman does not cover, she is fair game to be assaulted:
(Quran 33:59) O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused.
The veil represents a subjugation of women, and is often a declaration of Islamic supremacy. Sovereign nations of the West — especially given how far the Islamization of Western countries has already advanced — have a right to govern as they see fit for the well-being of their nations.
Citizens have a right to see who is driving a car, who is serving them, who is teaching their children, voting and so forth.
A small example: I once saw a woman wearing a niqab in Costco. How could she have shown her membership card? Any number of covered women could possibly be using a single card.
Discrimination? “Islamophobia”? No: the ban also targets other accessories that hide the face, such as balaclavas and false beards.
“Denmark bans Islamic full-face veil in public spaces”, by Camille Bas-Wohlert, Agence France Presse, May 31, 2018:
Stockholm (AFP) – Denmark on Thursday became the latest European country to ban the Islamic full-face veil in public spaces in a move slammed by human rights campaigners as “a violation of women’s rights”.
“Anyone who wears a garment that hides the face in public will be punished with a fine,” says the law, which was passed by 75 votes to 30 in the Danish parliament.
Presented by the centre-right government, the legislation was also backed by the Social Democrats and the far-right Danish People’s Party.
The new rule will take effect on August 1.
Wearing a burqa, which covers a person’s entire face, or the niqab, which only shows the eyes, in public will lead to a fine of 1,000 kroner ($156, 134 euros).
The ban also targets other accessories that hide the face such as balaclavas and false beards. Repeated violations will be fined up to 10,000 kroner.
It is not known how many women wear the niqab and burqa in Denmark.
“I don’t think there are many who wear the burqa here in Denmark. But if you do, you should be punished with a fine,” Justice Minister Soren Pape Poulsen was quoted as saying by Ritzau news agency in February.
– ‘Neither necessary nor proportionate’-
Amnesty International condemned the law as a “discriminatory violation of women’s rights”, especially against Muslim women who choose to wear the full-face veils.
“Whilst some specific restrictions on the wearing of full-face veils for the purposes of public safety may be legitimate, this blanket ban is neither necessary nor proportionate and violates the rights to freedom of expression and religion,” the organisation’s Europe director Gauri van Gulik said in a statement following the vote……
