From Mad World: After being approached by police, a Muslim woman was ordered to remove her face veil, but she didn’t exactly listen. Although she simply refused at first, things took quite the turn, and things didn’t end too well for her.
According to reports, the incident took place in Belgium – a nation that bans all facial coverings, which includes religious garments such as the niqab (Islamic face veil). Citing matters of public security, the nation doesn’t specifically list the Muslim face veil in their law, but rather anything that stops police from identifying any one person.
Despite that being the law of the land, it seems that Muslims are all too willing to completely disregard the laws of civilized nations in order to accommodate their outdated and barbaric beliefs, as we’ve seen several times in the past. On May 31, 2012, when police saw Stephanie Djato walking around with her face covered, they immediately ordered her to take it off.
Although she simply refused in the beginning, things quickly took a turn. After what we can only imagine was a daring back and forth, the Muslim woman was soon arrested, but it didn’t exactly go according to plan. Court documents would later indicate that Stephanie resisted arrest, but that’s not even the worst of it.
Once placed in cuffs, she continued to “act aggressively” before eventually head-butting a female officer. By the time all was said and done, Stephanie had injured two officers as well as racked up a slew of other charges.
Too bad for her, it seems her actions finally caught up to her. According to Breitbart:
Dutch newspaper, Het Laatste Nieuws, reports the court today found Ms. Djato (Stephanie) solely responsible for the fracas, handing down a prison sentence of 18 months and a 900 euros fine. She was also ordered to pay compensation to the police officers she attacked, with most going to the one who sustained the headbutt.Oddly enough, it seems that Stephanie may have been released on bail, as she did not attend her trial. Furthermore, a warrant for her immediate arrest has been ordered, indicating that she skipped bail and may now be on the run.
With all things considered, this sounds like a tricky situation. I mean, this woman obviously felt so strongly about her religion that she flat-out ignored the law and wore a face veil in public. I can’t help but think she initially refused because there were men around. When she was placed in cuffs, it only makes sense that officers once again tried to remove the veil, resulting in Stephanie “defending” herself the only way she could (a headbutt).
However, I also have a hard time believing that officers wouldn’t have obliged her request to have a female officer see her face in private so long as she was courteous, respectful, and polite. The fact of the matter here is that you can’t simply ignore the laws of the land you’re living in because you disagree with them.
It’ll only land you in jail with the rest of those who willingly broke the law – and rightfully so. In all, Muslims need to get over their entitled and demanding mentality. If you want to live somewhere and reap the benefits that country provides, then you must adhere to their way of life. If you don’t like it, you can always go to the Middle East, where the Muslim way of life is not only guaranteed but enforced.
