The French President Nicolas Sarkozy told the parliament that ” The burqa is not a sign of religion, it is a sign of subservience. It will not be welcome on the territory of the French republic”. My personal opinion is that French president is going to implement his wrong-headed freedom thoughts towards his people, which is against an individual’s freedom.
Even if religious justification for woman wearing burqa is wrong, I cannot find any difference with his words with that of a Taliban Mullah, who announce that all woman should wear burqa, since both are compulsions.
In this modern era, a person likes to come out of the social compulsions, which determines the wants and desires of a person. But this statement made by French president has nothing, but shows that still some individuals(especially women) has to live under the gutters of social compulsions.
