Correction thanks to Aussie:
South Australian Parliament!
SPEAKER Lyn Breuer has apologised to a Muslim woman who left Question Time in tears today after a question about whether burqas should be banned in state Parliament.
A ROW over the Islamic burqa has forced a parliamentary ruling on the religious headwear and causedÂ a Muslim woman to fleeÂ the House in tears.
Multicultural Affairs Minister Grace Portolesi told AdelaideNow she saw the young woman outside the chamber.
WTF does Australia need a “multicultural affairs minister” who is a complete and utter moonbat?
She was “hysterical” and “in tears”, Ms Portolesi said.
“This is what happens when people behave insensitively,” Ms Portolesi told AdelaideNow.
“This is why I have been talking for a number of months about better informing and educating our community around the question of religious diversity.”
Ms Portolesi said yesterday’s incident was a first hand taste of experience of what happened when people behaved insensitively.
Ms Portolesi said she had apologised to the young woman. “The lesson everyone should learn from today’s incident is that we have a very, very long way to go when it comes to our understanding of people from other cultures,” she said.
* May the burqa rest lightly on your shoulders, Ms Portolesi…!
