This has got to be the most inane and senseless letter to The Hindu that I've ever read (it's about the veil controversy in the UK):
Those advocating the removal of the veil feel the burqa hampers effective communication. What more is required to prove the degradation of values than the fact that we cannot accept a woman dressed decently and respectfully but would love to see her in indecent costumes? We put forward the most inane and senseless reasons to support our argument.
Straw man? Non sequitur? Slippery slope?
