In France, a woman who wears a Burqa, is subject to a fine of $215. Do you think this is good law?
The Trayvon Martin case and the question posed have one thing in common: it has energized a lot of attention. In France, first time violators are fined $215. Repeated offenses increase it. Does a country have a right to keep religious type dress out of its culture. Should France adjust the law so wearing a burqa is not allowed on the job only. The Burqa means different things to Westerners, usually associated with Islam, which is usually related to terrorists. It is a symbol now to many and a negative one.
Secutiry of a nation is more important than religious stuff. Until and unless it is harm to human it is a god law. I think burqa ban will not hurt a human, i think this is a law bound to security of people, of a nation and so its good.
No hard feelings please its just an opinion.
I feel that everyone has a right to express themselves and be free to practice whatever religious beliefs. Just because people are different does not mean they should be judged, just because people don't believe in the same god does not mean they are faithless. The world is full of uniqueness and difference and if people took the time to open their minds to learning about different cultures the world would be much more accepting and people would be much smarter. That photo you attached to this question is heart braking and totally unfair.
There are problems with this law from the outset if it only penalises the wearing of the burqa, does the law penalise, say, people of non-Islamic faith who cover their face in a public place, if not then the law is biased.
When it comes to shops,aerodromes, etc, the owners have the right of entry and are within their rights to withold entrance to those who do not allow their facial features to be seen and recorded.
It is a sad state of affairs to come to this that the whole of Islam is being punished because of the action of, relatively, a few lunatics.
You raise good points, leave it to a few rotten apples. I would think that Muslim women in France would want to blend in rather that draw attention, and unwanted attention, to them. Just as Western women wearing Muslim attire when in Iran, Saudi Arabia etc.
No, it isn't a good law. Every one must get their fundamental right to follow their religion. A law which harms any one's religious believes should not be encouraged.
its good law cos due to few people a country cant afford to lose many lifes and if some ones religion is hurt they can leave the country and go to the countries which doesnt ban burqa so that other people can leave in safe heaven or they can even migrate to muslim countries and moreover its same as muslim countries which dont give a hindu, a christian or a buddhist their fundamental right they dont even grant permission to build temples or churches over der
You have raised a very crucial question.
To answer you straight I would like to state that every sovereign country has a right to frame its law and all law abiding people whichever community they belong to are supposed to abide by such laws.
If I chose to answer you in a different way can I ask you whether it is right to stone a women to death if two or more men witness that she has committed adultery?
Which of the above two is more cruel? Stoning a women to death or fining her a few dollars?
I think its a good law. We cant judge everything by liberal standards as this burkha has become a mark of an eternel conflict between Islam and other religions.After all if you go to Saudi Arabia you will have to cover yourself

France:The new law says it is illegal to hide the face in the public space.What if it is bloody cold that day and you don't want to get sick? Is this tyranny of the majority? Mob Rule? Although the law does not mention “women,” ‘’Muslim” and “veil” - is it not discriminatory if...
