Idiocy of the Election Commission

In a news item, the EC of India has said that "Burqa is not integral to Islam". This has come up with regards to the issuing of voter-identity cards to Muslim women. A simple question is, "Does it matter?". For, the more important question is, what would EC do if it indeed is integral to Islam?

Our policy makers, starting from the DF Jawahar, have always been sidestepping on crucial issues. What EC must have said is that, "A photograph of the full face is a MUST" period. Islam or No Islam ain't matter. Instead they have made bleating noises regarding burqa not being integral to Islam. What happens if the Darul Uloom Deoband or Bareilley issues a fatwa stating that "burqa is integral to Islam"? EC will tie itself into knots!!
