Anticipating islamofascism in Bangladesh:

When I’m out walking on the heath, as a wannabe good citizen I habitually greet everyone, be they dressed in tanga or textile binbag. None of the Muslim women reply, but I have observed that, while the chador-dwellers keep their eyes modestly fixed on the ground, the niqab liberationists tend to take a sideways look. But are they hornier than convent school girls?
