N.Ram says burqa is oppressive

In what must be one of those rare moments when chindu says anything mildly critical of Islam, N.Ram says burqa is unquestionably an oppressive garment that seeks to keep those who wear it imprisoned behind a screen. Quick, print out copies of this and distribute it to the mullahs and those islamic rage boys who deliver instant justice.

N.Ram says burqa is oppressive, keeps those who wear it improsined behind a screen, backward looking, misogynist, antithesis of liberté, égalité, fraternité and against national motto of France. Phew! And the downside to banning the burqa is radicalisation of muslims. The argument against the ban is terribly weak. By allowing burqas, it is discouraging the integration of muslims into the French society and promoting ghettoisation, eventually leading to radicalisation. France better stand up for the humanitarian values that define its nation. N.Ram will of course never get to do that because he is an appeaser of islam.

The Hindu : Today's Paper / OPINION : To ban or not to ban
The burqa (not to mention the niqab) is unquestionably an oppressive garment that seeks, as Mr. Sarkozy pointed out, to keep those who wear it imprisoned “behind a screen.” It is nowhere prescribed in the Koran but has been imposed on millions of women by sections of the clergy — all of them male — who have interpreted religious texts to suit their backward-looking religious or political agenda. That many Muslim women seem willing to embrace the veil ... speaks more of their successful co-option in a misogynist project that is the antithesis of liberté, égalité, fraternité — values that go back to the French Revolution and are the proclaimed national motto of France.
