France's Faceless Women

France's Faceless Women: artilcle published in Mercatornet

VIDEO: Should face veil (burqa) be banned in Australia?

Should Australia follow various European countries and ban the face veil (burqa, niqab)? Abdullah Saeed argues Australia does not need to follow. It is only relatively few women in the West who wear the face veil (burqa). If they want to wear it, let them wear it. There is no need to ban it. In fact, banning may lead to an increase in its adoption by some Muslims as a symbol of protest.. Women who want to wear the face veil (burqa) should have the right to wear it. However, they should not argue that the society should allow them for example to work in professions where showing one's face is a basic requirement. In some cases, public interest (maslaha) may also demand that only people who are prepared to show who they are (for example by showing their faces) are permitted to enter certain areas, places, buildings and the like. Such measures should not be seen as discriminatory.

Muslims must tackle theology of hate

The Australian - Friday, 7th August 2009

 

EVENTS of the past decade have shown that small groups of militant extremist Muslims have a remarkable ability to create havoc in much of the world: killing, suicide bombing and destruction in the name of Islam.

That the number of these militant extremists is small is not a good reason for the majority of Muslims to remain silent.
