Niqab is a cloth that cover the face. For security or to maintain the rules of Islam Muslim women worn it in public areas. US ban niqabs recently for muslim women in America.
In AmericaMuslim are reacting to a controversial ban in Belgium to ban the niqab or face veil. The wearing of the full face veil in public has caused controversy throughout Europe. There are strong arguments for banning the full face veil (burka) on the grounds of the equality and emancipation of women, because many Muslim women are forced to wear it by their husbands and family.
And clearly this is totally unacceptable in western society. On the other hand some women who argue that they freely choose to wear the full face veil for personal or religious reasons and their views need to be taken seriously.
In an era of terrorism the security implications of full face covering are very serious. If even one terrorist were to achieve his or her aim through the use of the veil as a disguise this could have devastating consequences.
In addition many people feel a fear of those who they cannot identify and this fear is not irrational since criminals and terrorists have a greater incentive than most to hide their identity
Minority groups such as Muslims need to communicate in order to be accepted by western society, otherwise there will always be fear and mistrust between different communities.
It is particularly significant because only women who wear the face veil and normally women in Muslim communities are the most isolated and whose opinions are not heard. Western society communicates with Muslims it is predominantly with men and the full face veil is barrier to the integration and acceptance of Muslim women.
