Muslim woman threatens the court

A Muslim woman refuses to reveal her face and now threatens the court.

Not that I have problem with Muslims, but they are too far off. They disrespect about the laws. Earlier I reported in drivers license, religions, debate (AntBlog701) that Muslim women wanted to cover themselves and making them completely unidentifiable.

This time, a Muslim woman has told a court in New Zealand she would rather kill herself than give evidence without wearing a veil. So their religion is above all? A damn good example of disrespect to the law.

You can read the story - "I'd rather kill myself than remove veil, woman tells court" (New Zealand Herald, 27 Oct 2004)

And the follow up story, "Woman must keep face covered, husband tells judge" (New Zealand Herald, 27 Oct 2004)

Rules on burqas Driver's licence: Banned. Passport: Banned. Giving evidence: To be decided today. Overseas courts: Allowed sometimes
Thanks God, burqas are not allowed in NZ Driver's license and Passport.

What is a burqa?
A dull, monocolored dress that covers the entire body, including the face. It has a tight mesh over the face allowing air and restricted vision outwards. Women of Afghanistan are currently required to wear a burqa.

from iTunes Store:
May want to read the box on the right hand side of this page: Saudi Arabia: Women aren't allowed to drive
Iran: Women wear a traditional chador, which does not cover the face.
Egypt: Women do not cover their face in I.D. pictures
United Arab Emirates: Women do not cover their face in I.D. pictures
Oman: Women do not cover their face in I.D. pictures
Kuwait: Women do not cover their face in I.D. pictures
Qatar: Women do not cover their face in I.D. pictures
Bahrain: Women do not cover their face in I.D. pictures
Jordan: Women can drive if their faces are covered but do not cover their face in I.D. pictures
Quite interesting to see how Muslim countries do it... they don't cover the face. Simply because it would make it to easy for a criminal to hide. Just dress like a woman.
