The Ottawa Sun reports: "A Gatineau man is accused of ‘honour-based’ violence against his daughter for not wearing her hijab in public."
This is in Canada. Not in Pakistan or Somalia.
And this is about a hijab, not a niqab. It’s insane that in the 21st century, we need to learn Arabic words for medieval chastity belts for the face. (I remember it this way: hijab — “h” for headscarf. Niqab — “n” for ninja. And burka — “b” for beekeeper.)
It was almost exactly ten years ago that 16 year old Aqsa Parvez, born in Pakistan, migrated to Canada, wanted to live like a Canadian girl. She didn’t want to dress in a garbage bag, or a ninja outfit.
But her father and her brother murdered her. To save the family’s honour — seriously.
Ten years later — do you see more or fewer hijabs and niqabs in Canada?
It’s a political fetish for Justin Trudeau — if he sees a hijab anywhere, he rushes right over for a selfie.
When Quebec passed Bill 62, the law that bans any government employee from wearing the full ninja, and also bans anyone from getting services from the government while wearing the full ninja, no wonder that 87 per cent of Quebecers support it.
But if you gave this same survey to Canada’s journalists — the media party, the fancy people on TV scolding us for not having the right opinions — what would the numbers be?
Would 90 per cent of journalists oppose the burka ban?
So what should run this country — the will of Canadians? Or a handful of elites who would rather sentence your daughters to a life of worry and submission, in return for a few more votes at election time?
