The niqāb (the full-face veil, related to the burqa) has always distressed me a bit, but recently I've been feeling more strongly about it.
My thinking used to be that, while I don't like it, it can be a valid expression of someone's morals and faith, and I can see their thinking even while I disagree.
Now I find myself feeling that it's entirely dehumanising. How can you treat a person as a fellow human being when you can't see their face at all? How do you respect a faith that requires women to completely hide themselves inside a fabric tent?
