Right says Fred Nile, ban the burqa
by Gemma Jones
The Reverend Fred Nile will introduce a Bill to parliament calling for a ban on the Islamic burqa head and body veil.
The Christian Democrats MP wants NSW to follow France and other European countries, which have moved to ban women from wearing the full head and body covering in public.
But Muslim leaders yesterday said it was inappropriate for a man to tell a woman to remove clothing.
The private member's Bill will likely be introduced next Thursday.
