The Burqa Battle


As Sarkozy’s Burqa ban becomes a reality, the debate continues: is the Muslim cover-all a threat to Western society, or is banning the Burqa xenophobic and robbing women of their religious identity? Following the debate across France in the run-up to the ban, this report offers an insight into both sides of the case. In mosques tempers flare:“You are allowed to dress how you want, but I don’t have that right. Is this freedom?“. Yet Sarkozy supporters are adamant that the veil represents an affront to French values and that the president even has the support of an Imam of a Mosque in Paris, who says that the ban „gives a positive image of Islam“.
