Niqab a prod­uct of to­tal­i­tar­i­an­ism

Calgary Herald - - EDITORIAL -

Premier Rachel Not­ley does not seem to un­der­stand that the niqab is not a gar­ment, but a po­lit­i­cal state­ment by a bru­tal to­tal­i­tar­ian po­lit­i­cal move­ment.

As such, it has noth­ing to do with re­li­gion. Not­ley should know that Canada is a sig­na­tory to the UN Con­ven­tion on the Elim­i­na­tion of All Forms of Dis­crim­i­na­tion Against Women, and we must live up to the let­ter and spirit of our in­ter­na­tional obli­ga­tions by not only de­fend­ing women’s rights in Canada, but pro­vid­ing moral sup­port to Mus­lim women around the world.
