at last - someone voices some sense regarding the burqa

'Shockingly, the Dickensian bone disease rickets has reemerged in the British Muslim community because women are not getting enough vital vitamin D from sunlight because they are being consigned to life under a shroud.

Thanks to fundamentalist Muslims and 'hate' preachers working in Britain, the veiling of women is suddenly all-pervasive and promoted as a basic religious right. We are led to believe that we must live with this in the name of 'tolerance'. '

I have never heard an argument for this kind of thing that rang true to me - it just strikes me as oppression.
but we have to respect other peoples cultures now, dont we??
