Boating with a Birka

Section:

Boat shrouded with a veil provides a reminder that it is again time to debate banning burkas in Britain

A photograph of a boat named BIRKA II covered with a black shroud provides a somewhat tongue-in-cheek accompaniment to the debate that rages on as to whether Britain should follow the lead of Australia and France and ban the burka.

Shared on Facebook by contributor Edward Kay, the image, taken at Port Gallic, Juan les Pins, should be sent to Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May, a woman who believes that banning the burka “would be out of keeping with our nation’s longstanding record of tolerance”.

 

With Knightsbridge’s streets currently overtaken by parading foreigners – many of whom are burka clad – at night, we share a link to a 2011 article by The Telegraph’s William Langley. In it, the journalist argued that France’s ban of the burka in public places to be “right for France, beneficial to its Muslim communities and justified – if on no other grounds – as a statement in support of liberalism against darkness”.

 

It is time that Britain again considered a public ban for what the Islamic theologian Dr Taj Hargey has described as “a vile piece of clothing which imprisons women” and one that “is eagerly used by fundamentalist zealots to promote a toxic brand of extremist non-Koranic theology”. It is time to rid our streets of the misogynistic garment that is the burka.

    1. You people do not understand what is right and wrong. You lacking in respect idiots. Your countries would be nothing without our wealth. You should be kissing our feet.

      • Malik Your countrymen are so thick and stupid that you had to get the West into exploit your oil assets: and if you didn’t have those assets youwould still be doing what you are best at….racing camels and chopping off heads. You are a load of medieval barabarians who invent nothing and are nothing.

    2. It is quite frightening to see hordes of burka clad harems camping out in Hyde Park . The dogs are befuddled by the spectacle .. they assume it is a new kind of weird animal , and they bark at them..

    3. I agree with all of the above reader comments wholeheartedly but there is also the more serious aspect of security to consider. A burka is a very good way for a male terrorist to pose as a woman or indeed a male or female terrorist to avoid detection by facial recognition cameras. With the continuing rise in support for extremist groups like ISIS, allowing the burka to be worn in public is a chance that we can no longer take on our own soil just for the sake of typically British tolerance.

        • You should have simply told her you did not want to be photographed with her!!!! I heard others have done just that in the past namely a distinguished American lady you know well!!!!!

    4. I love these comments, especially from Peter Wayde, well done Peter! Ban the Burka, lets have Knightsbridge back please, I find these people utterly offensive to look at and they should not be allowed to walk around our streets, we should follow France and ban the Burka, on my next holiday I will go to Saudi Arabia in only my bikini walking the streets, then maybe they would see how we feel when we have to put up with the Burkas! If you don’t like it Malik, get on the next plane out of here and I will celebrate!

    5. Malik, our country has always been one of the best countries in the world and that is why you all come flocking here, you have no respect for us Brits so please get on your bike… we don’t want your money just your oil… and we and the Americans have at least got some of that!
