What is important is do we believe that people have the right to practise their religion, should have the right to choose, in the case of women, and the burqa and the niqab.Boris Johnson, in his column on Monday, said that Muslim women wearing burqas looked like bank robbers and that schools and universities should be entitled to tell students to remove them.
