Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hey, I strongly, categorically oppose the wearing of burqas. (I also strongly, categorically oppose the wearing of blue ties with pink flowers on them.)

But I also strongly, categorically oppose telling people what they can wear on public streets.

Where I can see an issue is in those cases where one has to identify oneself - passport checks, personalised tickets, exams, courts, etc. Courts are probably the most contentious one - anonymous witnesses really are not fitting for a democracy that claims to observe the rule of law.
