As a Deaf individual, covering of the face is highly disrespectful in our culture. And no, not just the United States of America, but internationally. Deaf Muslim children and women highly reject such facial coverings.
It's of utmost importance for our culture to 'read' facial expressions and the lip movements tell us a lot about the individual's emotions.
It is perfectly fine if they cover their head and their body... But not the face and hands.
Nuns wear penguin outfits and a lot of women here hide their faces under make-up and plastic surgery. No one begrudges them THEIR right to look stupid. So get a grip. It's a free country. Usually the "moral" majority gets upset when women AREN'T covering themselves from head to toe. Like when GW Moron was in office and his administration covered up all of the statues featuring exposed breasts. I mean, seriously. COME ON! What is wrong with you tRUMP fans. Back off, Bozos.
we should respect all cultural traditions but it should be known that it is not an Islamic sin to not wear one, so as with western culture or even laws that disallow face covering due to concealing identity if unlawful acts, they should remove.
yes, we should respect all culture. But, they still have to reveal their face to a private female staff member because something can happen like a kidnapping and they can't tell the cops what they looked like or who they were because they couldn't see their face.
