After recent comments about Muslim burka wearing women looking like 'letter boxes' or even bank robbers, from an UK Politician, would deaf agree, wearing these facial coverings, IS an actual abusing of deaf people's right to 'read' other people's faces/lips, thus, wearers are by default, are not complying with the UK or deaf and disabled access laws, and it isn't a case of religious intolerance, or, men telling women what to wear either?
Online argument supporting an outright ban in the UK feel it is necessary to ensure people can be identified properly, and they are who they say they are, as, various bank, border controls are having issue identifying the customers wearing them. Leading Islamic Imams in the UK say the wearing of the veil, is a 'choice' not a rule, so asking for facial proof isn't, religious intolerance as they claim. It suggests women are hiding their own faces by choice too,and not as media stated because men are telling them they must.
SKY TV was in furore yesterday when a presenter claimed burka wearing was a right to hide facial disfigurement. Can parents of children in schools demand the removal too, as this can frighten young children?
