Re: Switzerland could ban burqas in future!

Stoking the flames or...? (no comments)

Switzerland's justice minister said today that her country could ban full-body Muslim veils in the future, as neighbouring France is currently debating.

Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf said seeing a woman in a burqa makes her uncomfortable, even though the head-to-toe outfits are rarely worn in Switzerland.

"If the number of women wearing a burqa increases, we could study a possible ban," said Widmer-Schlumpf, 53, at a news conference to which she wore a short skirt and black leather boots.

But she said the veils weren't currently on the government's agenda.

Absurd. I hope that kind of a ban never passes here. Isn't there more important things in the world to be worrying about?

For example: If the number of women muffin toppin' it increases, could we study a possible ban for that?
