This house believes the face veil is a barrier to integration in the West( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topic triggered a heated debate, in the context of the controversy raging in the West about the face veil worn by a section of Muslim women. Those who supported the motion argued that Muslims living in western societies must avoid wearing Niqab, since it is not obligatory in Islam and because it is considered as a mark of separation by the larger society. The other side maintained that wearing Niqab is totally an issue of personal freedom and the western societies, which claim to be liberal and pluralistic, are not justified in making a hue and cry on a simple piece of cloth. Speaking for the motion were Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, the first Muslim to be made a Life Peer in the United Kingdom, and Reem Maghribi, founder of Al Sharq, the premier English language British-Arab culture and lifestyle magazine. Ahmed Younis, former national director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council in the US, who will soon join as adviser to senior US government officials, and Ayshah Ismail, a teacher at a UK Muslim Girls school who voluntary wears Niqab, opposed the motion
