Criticism of veils will divide views

THE ostensible purpose of the niqab is to be modest. To most people in this country, it is something strange and exotic, so it looks like attention-seeking (Write Back, October 1).

I suspect that many of the new teenage adopters will eventually find that life is more fulfilling without it.

Too much heavy-handed criticism will only polarise opinions.
