MP claims majority want veils removed
Telegraph & Argus
Whether devout Muslim women should remove face veils for reasons of national security and in daily matters involving identity was tackled head-on at a discussion chaired by Bradford's Council for Mosques and attended by local MP Philip Davies.
And Mr Davies claimed that 90 per cent of his Shipley constituents would vote for a total ban on such garments.
The council's vice-chairman Zulfi Karim invited Shipley MP Mr Davies to the meeting after he told the House of Commons that customs officials should be legally able to demand the removal of niqabs or other headwear.
