Swedish journalist Ingrid Carlqvist approves the ban on the Burqa, which came into effect in late July in Denmark, and which has just received a first fine:
’This question is very important because in the beginning when we started to see women in Hijab, we said to ourselves: They are not so numerous, it is not a problem.
I mean, I see these women every day and they look at me like a prostitute. I really do not like it. I do not like when in my own country somebody says I look like a prostitute.
And then, we had this problem wit the Niqab, the Burqa, and if we say that they are not so many and that this is not a problem, I do not agree.
I think it’s a problem if we want to keep our western countries in the state they are in. We are a Scandinavian country, we have always had equality between women and men, even since the Vikings. I do not want that in my country!’
