Burqa ban: Europe making a mountain out of a molehill
Sunday, 7th February 2010
If France goes through with its ban on the burqa, it will have made a law for fewer than 2,000 women. Italy and Germany, too, are edging towards a ban.

But young Muslim women in India — both veiled and otherwise — are wondering what the fuss is all about and why Europe is out to make a mountain out of a molehill. “It’s a non-issue,” says author Nagma Siddiqui.

The 39-year-old says the endless discussions are ill-informed and ensue because people “get unnecessarily provoked without understanding.”
