Should her husband be put on trial for imprisonment Assuming he does what he says?

That's what happens when you break the laws of a country.

Comments have been made to keep the husbands in the house and then we will have Paradise.

What an absurd attitude. Never mind what the woman might want - it's all about an archaic system of the domination of women by men. There's no room for it in a modern society, and I hope we soon have a similar law.

"We are for the freedom of women and against veils of any kind and Italian laws must be respected."

Is the quote from Islamic Community religious leaders in Italy, so they are not over reacting.

From what I understand is the Burkha is tribal dress rather than a religious garment.

FE i couldnt aggree more with you! ive got muslim friends some that demand there wive's wear the Burkha & some that dont!, also my neighbour is a muslim & they often have a group of about 25 women that come from bradford too there house & ALL the women are wearing it all you can see is there eyes!

on the other hand a guy that i dont know much of through a friend demands his wife wear it & yet he looks at other women & has had affairs.?..this law should be brought into power asap! give these women more freedom over there husbands.. ALthough ive heard its NOT manditory for them too wear it a large amount of them are forced to by there husbands

I was in Debenhams having a coffee when 2 people sat at the table next to me,one was a slim woman (presumably) covered from head to foot in black,wearing gloves,even the eyes were covered with a mesh fabric..her appearance made me feel very uncomfortable to say the least.

Why on earth did you feel uncomfortable - what was so scary about a woman with her face covered?

However I think that, apart from enforcing the Law which includes the wearing of Motor Cycle Helmets in Security Sensitive Areas, we should do nothing else.

I think that 'time' will eventually solve the problem, maybe a generation or so but that's not really that long to wait.
