Muslim women can be forced to show faces under new West Australian law
Legislation was drafted after woman who wore a burqa had a false statement conviction quashed
A new law requiring Muslim women to remove a burqa or niqab to prove their identity to West Australian police has been passed by the state’s parliament.
The legislation was drafted in response toÂ public outcry about the case of mother of seven Carnita MatthewsÂ who wore a burqa, and had a conviction of knowingly making a false statement quashed. (Source)

Mohammed Mohamed, when unburqaed
They’re searching for him by distributing his photograph, which only highlights the Keystone Kops aspect of this. Clearly the burqa is a security issue, but no one in Britain (or anywhere else) dares to discuss it as such, for to do so would be “Islamophobic.”
