Pre medieval superstitious nonsense. Falsified revelation. 

As opposed to the rational basis, beliefs and practices of the other Abrahamic faiths?

Whatever. The law in my country is based on common law, precedents, etc not religious lunacy. Law should be based on science, rationality and reason not bonkers pre medieval, dark ages rambling of a nutter. People can believe what they want...The moon is made of green cheese..but that is their personal and private belief for home and places of worship.  That is the problem with primitive Islam it imposes religious rubbish on other people and sections of society that should remain secular. There is no God. There are no prophets. When Muslims are free to shout this out loud and not be executed for apostasy then it will be a true belief system not a facist death cult.

If your country is the UK, then what's your problem? Are Musllims stopping from shouting your beliefs out loud?

So what, can make the same accusations with all Abrahamic faiths, not unique to Islam. 

 

Thailand also has many superstitious practices, both with practitioners of Islam and Buddhism

Much of UK law is rooted in morality and values that are directly derived from religious teachings.

Two wrongs do not make a right and those you quote are still in the dark ages as they know no better because they are indoctrinated with ancient beliefs .  Hence the Muslim burqa and all that it symbolizes  has no place in a modern  western country . The one thing that amazes me is that governments allow these Muslim practices to exist . Got to be seen to be  politically correct and non racist . Try taking your customs or ways of living to some  Muslim country and see the way they will react . Many Muslims are hypocritical as they expect foreign countries to accept their ways / customs but have no tolerance for alien views / habits / ways  within their own lands  .

Freedom of choice has a big place in ‘Western society’.

 

Even Boris understands that, which is why he does not advocate banning these forms of dress and restricts himself to ‘Hate Baiting’.

Like it or not Boris Johnson could be the next UK P.M .  He has chosen not to apologise  for his statements regarding the burqa and  rightly so with a huge backing .  If and when he becomes the PM he may well decide to ban the burqa from being worn in selected places of importance e.g airports , government offices etc ( as have other European countries ) . Also to comply when requested to remove the face veil by police / security forces at any time or place . Non compliance and defiance will carry a penalty .

What because I don’t wish to debate the multiple ‘if’s I’m your Islamophobic fantasy?

 

Your whole was your wishful thinking.

What are you on about, why the misleading info. Full face covering restrictions are already in-place in the UK as well as police / security forces can demand showing of the face, with power of arrest for non compliance.

I repeat ,  you are talking history which is not relevant to the modern day problems that threaten many western countries .

And I repeat; do you make the same comment when people who think as you do bring up events which happened 1000 years ago? 

 

I see that you have ignored my comment

British Muslims serve today in the British armed forces.

plus, of course, many British Muslims serve this country because they work in the NHS and other emergency services. They, and ordinary British Muslims going about their daily lives, far outnumber the tiny minority who wish this country harm.

 

But you and those who share your views ignore that.

In the past month alone we have has 2 attacks by newly UK nationalized Muslims . Talk about biting the hand that feeds you .

Two? There was the Westminster incident on the 14th, which, I understand, the police are still investigating to see if he was motivated by terrorism or not. What other terrorist attack has there been this month in the UK?

 

Maybe you mean the case of Lewis Ludlow, a convert born in the UK, who on the 15th was convicted of plotting an attack. But that attack never happened; the security services thwarted it. As they do most, usually with the help of intelligence from the British Muslim community.

 

On ‎8‎/‎22‎/‎2018 at 10:38 AM, superal said:

These terrorists have been known to dress as a female Muslim , burqa and all to evade intelligence and security . 

Of course, one terrorist attack is one too many; but I asked this question a long time ago: "How many terrorist attacks in the UK have been carried out by people wearing burkas?" No one answered then; will you do so now?

 

The 7/7 bombers wore ordinary, western clothes; they carried their bombs in backpacks. Banning the burka would not have stopped them.

The burqa and associated dress are a symbol of Muslims and all that goes with it from the Koran . Muslim women are forced to wear the burqa and are treated worse than animals in many cases . There is zero equality for women within the Muslim faith and the burqa says it all . However I am happy for them to wear it in the country that they came from .

The Koran makes no mention of the burka, or niqab. It merely says, as does the Bible, that both men and women should dress modestly.

 

The burka and niqab both predate Islam; they are Middle eastern cultural items, not Islamic. Indeed, as previously shown, some Jewish women wear them!

 

There has been an increase in Muslim women wearing the burka in the UK; but the increase is among young women who were born here, and in many cases whose parents were born here. The country they come from is the UK!

 

The UK, where we enjoy many freedoms denied many people in other lands. Why do you want to remove one of those freedoms?

Finally when you talk about the Muslim support in 2 world wars , try remembering the many true Brits who lost their lives to protect the UK . They would turn in their graves if they could see the state of the country now .

I do not need to remember, my father volunteered in 1939 and served in the RAF until he was demobbed in 1945.

 

My mother volunteered also and served in the ATS until 1944 when she left to give birth to my eldest brother.

 

They are both dead now, and they, and those who were killed in action or served and died since, would indeed be turning in their graves at the thought of the freedoms they fought for being denied people merely because of their religion!

Three days ago I asked, not for the first time, if those who object to the Burka also object to other forms of 'non British' dress; some of it worn for religious reasons.

On ‎8‎/‎21‎/‎2018 at 7:10 PM, 7by7 said:

Such as

  • Hindu women in saris;
  • Sikh men in turbans;
  • Haredi Jewish men in their long black coats, prayer shawls and funny haircuts and women in long skirts and tops with their hair covered by scarves, hats or wigs;
  • etc., etc.?

 Each time that question is asked, no one answers.

 

Which proves that their desire to ban the burka is not motivated by a desire for immigrant communities to integrate by wearing only western dress; not motivated by faux feminism and faux equality concerns; not motivated by a desire for a secular society.

 

It is motivated purely by ignorance and prejudice aimed at one group and one group only.
