Straw’s veil comments spark anger among Muslim groups

Why these people don’t want to understand Simple English? Its not about discrimination its about communication and good relations with in communities.

Jack Straw, the ex-foreign secretary, has angered Muslim groups by suggesting women who wear veils can make relations between communities more difficult.

The Blackburn MP says the veil is a “visible statement of separation and of difference” and he asks women visiting his surgery to consider removing it.

The Islamic Human Rights Commission said the Commons leader’s request was selective discrimination.

But the Muslim Council of Britain said it understood Mr Straw’s discomfort.

Muslims make up about a quarter of the population of Blackburn, and Mr Straw said he had carefully considered his remarks.
