(the assumption) the women who choose to wear the burka have no choice in the matter. They do. Provided that they are wearing it of their own volition, it's not the state's business.

@RJ - Are you that naive to think Muslim girls wear the burka (or niqab) of their own volition?

(It is the state's business if the wearing of a veil, headscarf or burka conceal the face, and so, lead to security issues in banks, airports, courts or government buildings.)
