French ask: Why not ban the burka?

A great question:

Why not ban full veil, says French government spokesman

The Communist MP who led the call this week for an inquiry, André Gerin, denounced the garments as walking prisons. In his request, backed by 57 other MPs, mostly from Nicolas Sarkozy’s centre-right UMP party, he said: “The sight of these imprisoned women is already intolerable to us when they come from Iran, Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia … It is totally unacceptable on French soil.”

In the United States the Hijab is more common:

Why not ban it too? It imprisons as well.

    What a stupid suggestion. Ban people from choosing how they want to dress? Who would want a government to be that controlling?

    I think we should ban all clothing on women.
