Marisol’s pointÂ here about the statement that Muslim dress makes about Western society is important. In addition, it is worth noting how this is yet another illustration of aÂ fake Muslim hate crime. Portraying oneself as a victim so as to gain the special protections and freedom from scrutiny that victim status offers — it’s a growth industry.
This one was a claim of victim status that backfired, as it did for Safia Jilani,Â another hijabbed Muslim woman who faked a hate crime against herself. More onÂ this story. “Hijab woman sentenced to six months,” by Sarah Malik forÂ NineMSN, November 19 (thanks to JW):

Carnita Matthews, 46, of Woodbine in Sydney’s south, was found guilty today of knowingly making a false complaint relating to events in June.

She later filed a police complaint alleging the officer who pulled her over had tried to pull off her hijab, which concealed her entire face except for her eyes.
But in Campbelltown Local Court today, magistrate Robert Rabbidge said the evidence was “overwhelming” that Matthews had submitted a false declaration to police.
“There is not a shadow of doubt in my mind beyond a reasonable doubt that she knew that the complaint she was making was false,” he said.
