Some people do not seem to understand that when you are in America you dress like Americans. Well, this burqa wearing Muslim woman got the smack down of the century for wearing her burqa.
The second wife of a recruiter for the Islamic State was told to remove her burqa in court otherwise she could not give her evidence.
Now the woman is facing criminal charges for not standing in court for the district court judge that was presiding over her case. Her name is Moutias Elzahed and her husbands name is Hamdi Alqudsi. She is suing police over a counter terror raid that took place on her home two years ago in September of 2014. Judge Audrey Balla informed her she had to remove her veil as it was against the law to wear it in court.
Judge Balla said it falls under the disrespectful behavior law which had been outlawed in NSW courts. The case remains ongoing. She not only refused to take her burqa off she refused to stand for the judge when she was entering and exiting the court. The Judge said,
” I noticed on Wednesday and I see again today that the first plaintiff (Ms Elzahed) does not stand when I come on to the bench and when I leave the bench. Is there a reason?”
The woman’s attorney stated,
“She is a strict Muslim, and according to my instructions she won’t stand for anyone except Allah, which I am not particularly happy with.”
Judge Bala would not back down and said that for every time she refused to stand she would be charged with additional offenses for disobeying the rules of the court.
As of September 1st the law states that failing to stand in court for the judge results in a $1100 fine and up to fourteen days behind bars. This is for just one time.
That is a pretty price to pay just for being obstinate.
