The Faceless Niqab
The recent ban in the province of Quebec on the niqab, the Islamic face-covering, when receiving ‘public services’ (reserved, of course, only for females) has raised a number of questions. Is the State interfering in religious freedom? Should Muslims, and Muslim women in particular, have the right to cover their face? (The underlying and, for various reasons, unspoken question is whether Muslim men are coercing their women to wear the face covering, and whether they have the right to do so).
Trudeau and his Liberal mannequins are dutifully touting the notion of ‘religious freedom’, as though this mantra solved all difficulties.
