Should the Muslim veil be banned in Guyana?

: Kaieteur News: "On Monday, in a city in northern Italy, a woman was arrested for entering a post-office wearing a Muslim scarf known by its Muslim name, hijab or niqab. In schools across Europe the debate is raging about banning students from wearing it. In French schools it is prohibited. The European leader leading the charge is President Sarkozy of France. Banning both the hijab and a Mujslim dress named the burkha is a certainty in France. The constitutional Court has ruled in favour of its prohibition and the lawmakers are yet to decide."
