Hysterical laugh of the day: Iran slams Canada over “human rights abuse”
Once upon a time, Amnesia used to care about human rights. At least that’s what we used Â to believe.
Now, Â Amnesia is has been taken over by loons who suck up to dictators seeking toÂ atone for America’s sins as if America and the West are the serial violators of human rights.
Catalonia set to vote on burqa ban
John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s expert on discrimination in Europe, supports misogyny, wife beating, child-marriage, polygamy, Islamic jihad, mass-migration and subversion under the guise of “choice” and Â “religious rights laws”.
Did this discredited bunch of losers ever have a moral compass?
The regional parliament in Catalonia is due to vote on a ban on the use of the face-covering veil and the burqa in public, fueling debates over the freedom of rights in the country.
The motion was put down by two conservative parliament members demanding that Catalonia “adopt the legal reforms necessary to ban the wearing of clothes that totally cover the face.”
The ban is expected to be in effect in all public areas as well as public buildings throughout the northeastern region.
Meanwhile, one day ahead of the vote, human rights group Amnesty International called on Catalonia’s lawmakers to remove the motion.
“Any wide-ranging ban will violate the rights to freedom of expression and religion of those women who choose to wear a full-face veil as an expression of their identity or beliefs,” John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s expert on discrimination in Europe, said.
“Women should be free to choose what and what not to wear. This is their right under international human rights law” he added.
The move by Catalonia comes as several other cities, including Barcelona, have approved bans on the use of the Islamic veil in public over the past weeks.
Earlier on Monday, Coin — a small town in the southern region of Andalucia — was the first town outside of Catalonia to ban the veil in public buildings.
The banning measures come as the socialist government of Spain argues that the use of such body-covering garments is best opposed through education instead of imposing restrictions.
Human rights activists, for their part, maintain that such a ruling would violate the European Convention on Human Rights, which is expected to guarantee the fundamental liberties of individuals.
The controversial ban comes as there are currently about one million Muslims living in Spain from among a population of 47 million.
