Cherie Blair criticises the veil

Cherie Blair has criticised Muslim religious dress for women under situations where they it is not _freely undertaken” and where it fails to acknowledge “the woman’s right to be a person”. A practising Roman Catholic and wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, she warned against the full-face veil (niqab) worn by strictly Islamic women worldwide because it could prevent a woman from expressing her personality.http://themuslimweekly.com/fullstoryview.aspx?NewsID=4E359C49CA5A791ABA889D06&MENUID=HOMENEWS&DESCRIPTION=UK%20News
