You’re still talking about Nicolas Sarkozy’s call to ban the burqa from France. And yesterday Al Qaeda issued this statement,
“We will not tolerate such provocations and injustices, and we will take our revenge from France.”
Sarkozy set up a commission of 32 lawmakers to look into ways of restricting its use in France. Since his comments last week a number of people have come out in support of his view, including this blogger from India and this columnist in Kenya.
Is he right? And should the burqa be welcome in your country? Is the burqa really about personal choice? And should France reconsider its postion in light of Al Qaeda’s threat?
