The Orwellian Times in Belgium: Burqa Bans? Or the Banning of Free Speech?


A Parliamentary committee in Belgium has just voted to ban the burqa. The language of the ban is strategically neutral in terms of religion and ethnicity: It bans “face coverings,” not “niqab” or the “burqa.” This is the only approach that might work but I doubt that the full Parliament will approve it; and, [...]
