Muslim in Australia denied service over niqab (head bag with face mask)

by 1389 on April 30, 2013

in 1389 (blog admin), Australia, burqa/niqab

A Queensland veiled Muslim teenager has filed a case at an anti-discrimination commission …

… “I’m Australian, I was born and raised here, I know my rights,” she added. …

… While hijab is an obligatory code of dress for Muslim women, the majority of Muslim scholars agree that a woman is not obliged to wear the face veil, or niqab, but believe that it is up to women to decide whether to cover her face. …

Interesting that the article claims that ‘Muslim scholars agree that it is up to women to decide.’ Really? Since when do Muslim males permit their ‘women to decide’ about anything? But, then, we could also take into consideration the source of this information, i.e. On Islam.

Article here.
We put little credence in this complainer’s allegations of mistreatment at the service station. If she were living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, she would not be allowed to drive at all.

Service stations are a type of business that is exposed to a high risk of theft, robbery, and worse. Islamic clothing has all too often been used as a disguise for committing crimes. The service station has every right to insist on seeing and identifying all of its customers. It has every right to refuse service to anyone dressing or acting in a suspicious manner, and it should not be compelled to make an exception for “religious headgear.”

This is AUSTRALIA mate NOT an ISLAMIC/MUSLIM C0UNTRY. We prefer Bikini’s out here. No hard feelings (we only have those below the belt) ,but If you have something to hide by covering up. Go back to where you came from as this attitude is not welcome here. Surely, you are not being forced to stay here. Cheers
