UK - Muslims forced to lift veil at airports

The Scotsman reports.

VEILED women will be forced to reveal their identities at UK airports under a government plan to tighten security, Scotland on Sunday can reveal.

Home Office insiders last night confirmed that immigration officials will be ordered to impose their legal right to lift the veils of passengers after it emerged a suspected police killer may have escaped the UK dressed as a Muslim woman.

But the plan has been attacked by unions, which claim it would impose intolerable demands on their members, particularly female officers who would be the only ones allowed to look under veils.

Why? The veil is not a religious symbol but is in fact, a radical political statment and is banned in some Muslim countries. Why are we then pussy footing about with this nonsense?

Veils should be banned in public full stop, or, at the very least on all public transport.
