Police assaulted by burqa-wearer’s husband

 From Deradactie


Thu 29/09/2011 – 11:38 Police officers in the Brussels municipality of Sint-Joost-ten-Node were attacked by the husband of a woman that refused to remove her burqa. The incident happened on Wednesday after a patrol from the Brussels-North Local Police Service spotted the woman wearing a burqa on the Liedekerkestraat at around 12:35pm.

The wearing burqas and other garments that cover the face has been illegal since legislation on the issue was passed by the Federal Parliament earlier this year.

The police officers asked the woman to remove the part of the burqa that covered her face so that they could identify her. She refused and was asked a second time to show her face.

This met with a furious response from her husband who proceeded to attack the police officers.

One officer was injured in the attack and will be off work for three days.

Police Commissioner Roland Thiébaut told the Brussels regional news website brusselnieuws.be that “Our inspectors wanted to identify her to enable them to draft a crime report.”

“She refused and her husband became aggressive. He said that he would kill anyone that touched his wife. He struck one of the inspectors. The police officer is now unable to work for three days. “

The man was detained and his case is now in the hands of the judicial authorities. The woman left the scene without removing her burqa.

However, the police have been able to identify the woman and have compiled a crime report for the judicial authorities.

  1. Am i missing the obvious here,but did this not happen in Brussels ,not Britain?…….Not that i’m trying to excuse Britains dhimmification?

  2. those muslim women who insist on wearing the head bag are not embracing our western principles of equality for men and women…if they want apartheid and non assimilation, then let them be deported to those MUSLIM countries where head bags are the norm…I don’t want to see these ugly black walking condoms in my country….

  3. @Trev – Totally my mistake. Thought Brussels was a city in Britain. =X Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with Belgian political dynamics, so I would have done better to hold my tongue. 😉 Sorry everybody! @Threewing – Read it. Thanks. Hate to play devil’s advocate here, but the husband was defending his wife, so this can’t be called maltreatment towards women. While I do not defend abuse or murder—both of which are detrimental to society—I would want my husband to at least chew somebody out if they demanded that I remove an article of my clothing. I have to wonder whether the no burqua law is really the most practical way to prevent lawlessness. How about more sophisticated intelligence for prosecuting people who are building bombs instead? After all, you can’t prosecute someone simply for being a Muslim; you have to prosecute for a real crime, and wearing a burqua is not one.
