If it was up to me, I would ban the burqa and the whole dress that covers "who know what" - maybe not the body. What concerns me, here on this subject, is not religion - but security. Is it a female behind the burqa ? Can the face be recognized as a criminal ? Are there bombs or weapons underneath all material ? This is the crux of the problem.
