France: woman rips burqa off Muslim woman

Clearly NOT good. The law will be introduced in its moment and in any case, another citizen can’t go riping clothes off other people. This does more harm than good to the people who, like me, have supported the burqa ban, firstly on dignity grounds (no man is entitled to rape or make any sexual approach just because she is not veiled and no woman should walk along the streets with a carpet on her even if it has “holes to let the air pass“, as it hinders her own personal security) and secondly, on public security grounds (no one knows who is under the veil or what is that person carrying inside).

A female lawyer allegedly ripped another woman’s burka off in a clothes shop – and told her to clear off to your own country‘.

The 26-year-old Muslim convert (so, is she a French woman too?) said the 60-year-old lawyer made ‘snide remarks‘ about her Islamic veil.

An argument followed during which the older woman is said to have ripped the veil off, before the Muslim woman allegedly punched her. 

Both women were arrested.

The row happened in Trignac, near Nantes, France, as the country prepares to introduce a ban on the burka.

A police officer said: ‘The lawyer said she was not  happy seeing a fellow shopper wearing a veil and wanted the ban introduced as soon as possible.’

At one point the lawyer, who was out with her daughter, is said to have likened the Muslim woman to Belphegor  (left)- a horror demon character well known to French television viewers

The lawyer’s use of the name ‘Belphegor’ was particularly inflammatory, said police, because the demon was portrayed by classical writers as ‘Hell’s ambassador to France’.


Belphegor on Wikipedia.

PS: Why the detail of the attacker being a lawyer? Does that has anything to do with the act? I don’t think so.
