Honorable Ghouse,

Burqa itself cannot be much of an issue. It also cannot be an issue as to what commands Burqa. The real concern is what commands the thing that is inside the Burqa. We got to understand the stuff that is inside. Is it a treasure that is safe because nobody can look for them? Is it a possession something enslaved as live stock? Is it a form of chauvinistic fear, guilt, worry, unease or shame? Is it the allegiance to tradition because it is accumulated wisdom of past generations? Or is it a mere opinionated girdle to hold women in when she goes out?

What is in the bag? As you suggest we leave them for market to decide. But the hidden thing only has black market, a social hazard.
