Damian Green is a cowardly piece of shit, but then he is a Tory MP and we can expect no better from the likes of him. I do wonder what Philip Davies MP thinks. I know he says he is a Libertarian but does not want a ban. I am a Libertarian and want a ban on the grounds that:
1. it brings Islam into hatred, ridicule and contempt
2. it is in fact unIslamic - the Koran tells Muslims not to worship ostentatiously. This means Muslims should not draw undue attention to themselves, but of course women riddled by feminine neuroses don't get this and want to indulge their neuroses while making an ostentatious show of piety.
It is for the prevention of crime and the protection of the reputation of Islam that feminine neurosis should not be indulged in this way.
This practice after all brings Islam into hatred, ridicule and contempt by right-thinking members of society.
YUSUFALI: And do thou (O reader!) Bring thy Lord to remembrance in thy (very) soul, with humility and in reverence, without loudness in words, in the mornings and evenings; and be not thou of those who are unheedful.
PICKTHAL: And do thou (O Muhammad) remember thy Lord within thyself humbly and with awe, below thy breath, at morn and evening. And be not thou of the neglectful.
SHAKIR: And remember your Lord within yourself humbly and fearing and in a voice not loud in the morning and the evening and be not of the heedless ones.
