Ban the Burqa

France, Belgium, Austria and most recently Denmark have banned the Burqa, with some going further and banning the Niqab as well. Despite the cries of racism and authoritarianism from left-wing activists and Muslim communities, all of these countries are still free and open democracies. If these countries can build up the courage to do the right thing and ban the Burqa, then why can’t we? There is plenty of public and political support for such a move. In 2016, YouGov found that a majority in each party believed that the Burqa should be banned, and in 2017, they found that a majority of the public (48% in favour/42% against) thought it should be banned.

Theresa May has used the 100-year anniversary of the Suffragette Movement to say that she will continue the legacy of female empowerment created by women such as Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett. We, therefore, ask that she live up to this mission she has set out on and prove that she cares about the liberation of women. Ban these hideous coverings, not only because they are an affront to the progressive values that you hold so dearly, but because they represent the growing societal divisions in our country created by multiculturalism. If we can’t demand that such archaic practices are abandoned upon entering our country, then as these communities grow they will continue to take more liberties for granted. Eventually, you would be able to mistake some places In the UK for areas of Saudi Arabia or Iran. The people support it, the parties support it, therefore the task is simple, The Parliament of the United Kingdom and Houses of the Oireachtas, Ireland's national parliament must #BantheBurqa.
