Sayeeda Warsi says Muslim communities should phase out face veil

Some rather controversial news - Dewsbury-born Baroness Warsi has said this morning that she would like to see the face veil disappear in Britain within 20 years.

Sayeeda Warsi, who is herself a British Muslim, has said the veil worn by many Muslim women has “no place in the landscape” and that Muslim communities must “lead the charge” on phasing it out. Baroness Warsi added she is opposed to an outright ban and that the government should not dictate what women wear.
