It was a difficult decision for me to decide whether or not to write this blog post. I don’t want this blog to be political in nature, but I do think I am in a unique position to share some current events with you in an objective, bias free way.
Most recently, France’s prez Nicolas Sarkozy has decided he wants to ban the burqua in his country, for safety reasons. There are about 2000 Muslim women living in France who would be affected by this decision. Is this fair to them? I want to let you decide. Here are some articles with different point of views.
First, a general article from The Peninsula, which talks about the basics of the possible ban.
Next, Al-Jazeera’s article with two very different points of view.
And lastly, a Yahoo news article with more about the forthcoming decision.
Again, I just post these so you can know the story and decide for yourself! It’s relevant to us here in a Middle Eastern, Muslim country, so I wanted to share the debate.
Feel free to discuss in the comments!
