The burqa debate and the human face

Il dibattito sul burqa e il volto

EN | IT | FR | DE – The political debate around banning the burqa for reasons of public safety is really laughable. The risk to security posed by a woman wearing a full veil is minimal compared with that posed by bellicose, brainwashed men. The discussion that has been going on for years now about Muslim women wearing headscarves or the presence in public spaces of religious symbols such as the crucifix all points to something rather more fundamental.
