For several months a parliamentary commission in France has been investigating whether the burqa or niqab should be banned.

The creation of the commission came after President Nicolas Sarkozy said the burqa "was not welcome on French soil" during an address to parliament in June of last year.
Sarkozy expressed his dislike for the burqa and was joined by a group of 65 other MPs who asked that a commission be created to investigate whether the Muslim religious dress should be banned.
As we await the release of the report, due on Tuesday, we'd like to know what you think.
Do you think it's fair that the French government is considering a ban on the burqa? Do you think that Muslim women should have the right to display and practice their religion as the please?
Should other religions be subject to a similar ban? Should people of the Jewish faith be prohibited from wearing a kippah in public? What do you think?
