    Does unemployment necessarily mean discrimination? Could it be that due to cultural reasons, they may be either not interested in working outside their homes or did not focus on career-enhancing skills? I suspect this could be so in the case of Pakistani and Bangladeshi women.

    Rather interesting.

    What's wrong if one covers one's face to ensure that one does not feel cold or have the harsh sun on their faces causing skin cancer?

    Chinese have Chinese names but then they also have English names.

    No one has complained of that!

    According to this by the same newspaper

    Given the likelihood of Pakis and Bangladeshis forming a major chunk of the above, three quarters of Muslim women, does not exactly translate to "20.5 per cent of the Pakistani and Bangladeshi women", does it?

    So which one is it?
