Yeah I saw it, I think if you are pulled over by the police they should be able to ask the woman to remove it. If a driver was wearing a balaclava or anything else concealing their face they'd be asked to remove it - simply for identification purposes. Its a basic legal necessity to be able to identify someone. I realise they wear it for religious reasons but the law requires people to be identified. I got pulled over by the police once as they were doing licence and registration checks - first thing I had to do was show my licence and the officer looked at it and at me to confirm it was ok. It cant be one law for some and not others.

yeah that is what dh and i ended up thinking. i kinda think that one has ruined it for the majority though which is disappointing.
Yeah - i saw this & was following it when it was hot a while ago.
This is an absolute joke.

Something needs to be done. There has been a precedent set now - what's next?

Hell, i might start wearing a burqua (sp?) & doing whatever the hell i please too!

I dont know what the answer is & banning the burqua certainly isnt it - thanks France for trialling that, but there has to be a culturally acceptable way to deal with these situations.

They are talking about fingerprinting - there will probably be a 'problem' with that too.

yep, the article said fingerprinting and then signing under it. it does set a scary precedent though.

Would have to be the same as skippy on this, stuff like this really puts me in a mood and if i had to say what I thought there would be aloooot of swear words and anything i said would be just downright nasty and ot for a forum lol
i saw it and thought it was unfair, i cant believe the ruling got over turned, the whole point is that she lied, therefore she made a false accusation of a police officer, any aussie here who did that would face the consequenses(sp), look i understand the religious side and i am not racist what so ever but i went to one country last year and all foreigners had to cover up, i had to not show any skin, me and DH werent even allowed to hold hands or kiss, so i just dont think its fair that in our country we cant stick to our own rules and say sorry u cant wear that. full stop! otherwise you face our consequenses.our law is crap.
I wrote alot deleted it and then wrote alot more and deleted it, so all i'm going to say is i disagree with people having themselves covered from head to toe, it makes me feel uneasy
from what i know the burqua is not forced upon women by the quran, therefore when they say it is for religious reason, they are saying that as a way to get away with things or to cry rasism or that they are being picked on.


First of all, it depends on which Islamic scholar you ask. They are all in disagreement as to what extend Quran advocates this. However, the Quran does urge men and women to dress and behave modestly in society. The Quran does not specifically mention the Burqa or tells women to wear such extremely confining clothes. The Ulema or the Scholars do agree that the Quran says women should not wear extremely revealing clothes. Modern day muslims base their authority regarding the Burqa on the Hadith or collected traditions of life in the days of Muhammad the prophet. But a noteworthy objection is that Hadith describes 7th century Arabian life, which should not be imposed on modern day Muslims world wide. Muslim communities also argue that women are to dress modestly but should not be forced or punished to wear a Burqa. This is why many Muslim communities have different preferences regarding the application of the Burqa.
