I think the burqua will disappear next generation.
It will if we don't make a big issue of it.

I have known muslim people for almost 50 years. I have worked with them,and I have socialised with them. None of the women associated with those people wore burquas,or niquabs,and I could count,on the fingers of one hand,the number I have seen on the street in my area.

All these pages for what really is a non-issue. :twocents-mytwocents: :twocents-mytwocents:

When I was handing out how-to-vote material for the local council elections recently, I encountered one woman in a niqab and one in a hijab. They were both greeted by electors who looked anything other than likely Muslims. This was in Killarney Vale, a strong Labor area.

If we keep telling all the Burqa wearers that they are hiding because they are ugly,
then they may wake up one day and display themselves!

It's worth a try!

Austria has banned the burqa. That is, complete covering, eye grill, and eye slit.
Masks, (eg. medical and comic) and rugging up to the eyes with beanies and scarves will be allowed under certain circumstances.
Head scarves and hats which allow the face to be seen are allowed.

That is similar to here when someone needs to be identified/identifiable, such as for driver's licence photo, witness box, banks etc. I believe.
