    I voted no.

    I don't see it as religious indoctrination. Yes, it may go some way in encouraging the child to live an Islamic life, but the only way to really prevent that is to take that child out of that family, and that's just going too far.

    But anyway, the state shouldn't have a say as to what your religious beliefs should be and should not dictate to families what religious beliefs they should or shouldn't encourage their children to have, in the first place.

    The unlived life is not worth examining.

    To those in favour of a ban: if it were implemented, how should we punish parents who are caught?

    That would be less fair on those parents who were convicted during the summer.

    I think that having young girls wear niqab and jilbab should definitely be banned, however the khimar is OK as it's not as extreme as the others, and doesn't promote the idea of young girls being awrah and isn't a educational/social barrier.  I think also that if we go as far banning the hijab, those same parents will put extra pressure on their girls.

    Yeah, they might stop their daughters from going outside alltogether. On second thoughts, they WILL for sure.

    It's to the point in some cases (mine) that you're even made to feel uncomfortable around your brothers and dad....that's what it's like when you're young you don't know why, and then you're made to feel somehow you have to wear loose clothing etc. Mum would say things like 'what are you wearing, around your father and brothers too...' and give me that dirty look as if there's something wrong with me. If I wore trousers that were 'tight' quotes because they weren't tight, they were just trousers, but i managed to overcome her attempts to keep me wearing traditional clothes (or baggy and crappy western clothes) but I still feel somewhat uncomfortable (automatically) around my dad and older brother.


    This is so common in Bengali families and it is very disgusting.  Like you, I also feel uncomfortable around my father/brother if I don't cover up, its very sad.  It even goes to the extent where I never actually hugged my brothers because we shouldn't be touching, I think I only hugged them on my wedding day.

    That's just awful, Pariah!  I briefly went through a phase when I first started getting serious about the hijab where I felt uncomfortable around my stepdad, who had known me since I was little.  It took my Pakistani Muslim friend telling me that since he is my family I could still touch and hug him.   wacko

    Upon recollection, I never once saw any physical sign of affection between my father-in-law or any of his children, let alone myself.

    I think it should be illegal for parents to make children under the age of 13 wear the niqab. I think one should be atleast 16 or 18 in order to wear niqab.

    Religious laws are already fucked up anyway. 5 year-olds are clueless about religion, let alone understanding what wearing a hijab is all about. I have two sisters who are wearing the hijab now, and both of them didn't start 'til 13, which is too young, but a lot let worse than making a 5 year old wear one.
