Honestly - I think the only thing that bothers people is the face covering. And not because of why they are suppose to cover the face - but because you simply cannot see the face. It mentally alienates you. Of course, you're presuming that ALL burqas have a face covering and they do not - sometimes they're one garment and sometimes the face covering (hajib or niqab and other names) is separate or not worn at all.
If it was the entire garb then you would, also, be against the habit - which is a head-to-toe covering for a nun. They vary sect to sect but usually are the same idea.
The Cassock - which is a male version of a nuns habit and take on a 'dress appearance - only no head covering.
The alb - which is a religious robe worn by monks.
Various dresses worn by the Apostolic Pentecostal women, as well as their long hair.
The only difference between these and the burqa, niqab and chador is that they do not require covering the face in some fashion.
So why aren't you against those things?
You just don't respect people's right to have their faith and live how they want to live and find it personally offensive when someone has a style that you consider different.
If you find it offensive you should support the women who DON'T want to wear it in their effort to break away from this body-garb tradition. NOT just pasting all with a "you can't do it anymore"
But some women do want to wear them for whatever reason and they should be allowed to if they see fit to do so.
I don't think you realized that this law is forcing something on women who might have gone their entire lives without having to show their body/face in public - I imagine that suddenly being forced to go without would be quite embarrassing and difficult to go through with for some. I can also imagine that some would rather just be a shut in than feel like people are always looking at them.
Apparently you don't realize what its like to feel like everyone is looking at you and gawking when you've changed your appearance. . . and for it to be forced on some of them, I can imagine that's just unpleasant to say the least.
Oh - but your visual-preferences while walking down the street are apparently more important than someone's personal comfort.
If they mind and don't want to wear it then they shouldn't HAVE to - but no one can tell a religion what to require and what not to require for its followers. So, of course, people will support a biased and senseless war against one religions attire, instead.
Whats more absurd than everyones bias is that some things have actually been strongly sexualized - like a nun's habit.
Thus - are you ever going to grow equal opposition and outrage for the nuns on their behalf? Or against their required habit?
I don't think so.
