    The Burqa Debate has been a hot topic in the Netherlands, and because of my own background (having lived both in Qatar, a conservative muslim country, and the Netherlands) it naturally intrigued me to do an in depth research about it. For this I have done interviews with an anthropologist specialized in Salafism, Ineke Roex, a Dutch-Moroccan woman wearing the niqab, and some research of reports of the debate. One could say it is a debate with many layers and viewpoints, but I chose to specify in the topic of freedom, and who is to say, what freedom is defined to be? I hope to open peoples minds, and look at the issue in a way that you are aware of your own cultural biases. Many thanks to all those in helping me on my path: Dr. Roex, Minsung Wang

      There has been widespread debate across Europe over an Islamic woman's right to wear the burqa, a veil which traditionally covers the entire body leaving only a space for the eyes. Some say that a woman should have the freedom to choose what she wears, while others disagree. The burqa debate has reached new heights in Australia after an anti-burqa mural was painted in Newtown, Sydney Australia. Is this freedom of speech, or an act of racial and religious discrimmination? Melissa Wilkinson and Dana McCauley report. Music by Joseph Tawadros.
