Britain's UKIP Proposes To Ban Burka

The British UK Independence Party is taking aim at two popular Muslim traditions according to a recently released statement.

Britian’s UK Independence Party is taking aim at two popular Islamic practices. The UKIP seeks to outlaw wearing full-face veils and the practice of female genital mutilation. UKIP leaders claim the ban is an effort to promote cultural integration and curb the degradation of female Muslims.

“I don’t believe you can integrate fully and enjoy the fruits of British society if you can’t see people’s faces. I can’t walk into a bank with a balaclava on or a crash helmet. If I can’t do it and other people can’t do it, I don’t see why there are special interests for certain people.” – UKIP leader Paul Nuttall

The UKIP’s proposal would fine anyone wearing a burka or similar face veil in public. The proposal also seeks to stop female genital mutilation. FGM is a rising problem in Britain, with nearly 6,000 reported cases occurring last year. UKIP claims it will “introduce mandatory reporting of suspected cases of FGM for teachers, social workers, nurses, the police. The proposal would also include FGM awareness training for teachers, school staff and governors.
UKIP also has plans to implement annual medical checks on at-risk children. Families identified as high risk for FGM would have to take their children to regular checkups. This would significantly reduce the child’s risk for having FGM.
Liberals were quick to pull the racist card. Labor party lawmaker Chuka Umunna specifically took aim at the burka ban in a tweet:

“Sorry, Britain won’t be taking any lessons on integration from hate peddlers UKIP.” – Chuka Umunna
