Just saw a repeat of this yesterday and still can't see what all the fuss is about.

If it were upto me, I would ban all religion. It causes far too many problems with various whack-jobs doing terrible things in the name of their God.

I didn't see anything insulting, at no point was there anything derogitory mentions about the Burka. It was just used as a cunning disguise in the name of comedy. Load of fuss over nothing.

1. The burka is NOT in the quoran.
2. It is just a piece of clothing not a religious item
3. It was actually stupid and unnecessary for them to be wearing them.
4 Top Gear used to be a car magazine programme. Now its just a 'reality' TV joke challenge show that happens to include automobiles.
5. I will still watch it nevertheless.

i'm a muslim and i don't think they made fun of our customs it was just a show no harm was done.
the only thing they showed was how many boarders we have in the middle east or arab countries.
we always see them crossing europe without seeing any boarder.
