BRUSSELS — Belgian right-wingers have offered a bounty of €250 ($325) to anyone who reports a veiled woman to police, they said Tuesday after last week’s riots in Brussels over the arrest of a woman wearing a niqab.

Filip Dewinter, a senior figure in Vlaams Belang, a right-wing party, said the violence had made police apprehensive about enforcing the burka ban and the payment should put pressure on authorities to further enforce it.

“It’s a textile prison for the women who have to live under it,” he said.

Last week, protesters hurled bins and metal barriers at a police station after Stéphanie Djato, 24, was arrested for refusing to remove her face veil.

“They tried to enter by force, but they were not able to,” a spokesman for Brussels police told broadcaster RTL.

“So instead they threw metal barriers and bins.”

Ms. Djato, who was waiting at a streetcar stop, scuffled with officers after she refused to show them any ID. During the mêlée, a policewoman was injured.

  1. The Muslim says he lets his women free to wear burka, but he lies. He forces his women to wear burkas. The proof of his lying is the civil war in Syria. Lying destroys trust between warring factions of Muslims, and makes peace impossible. The more a Muslim lies, the more he will sink into the tar sands of Syria. It is possible that Iblis strikes another blow, and creates a civil war in Saudi-Arabia. It will be good for the Muslim, as it will lead him to conversion, and saves him from the eternal fire, as well as the eternal sodomy.

  2. Europe is needlessly focussing the “veil issue” which relates to the lives of a very small portion of European society. It is estimated that there are only about 2000 Muslim women in France and 30 in Belgium who wear burqa. European Establishments concern with the affairs of such a tiny minority represents a clear instance of cultural bigtory. Those wearing burqa were ridiculed as “walking-coffins” or ” asymmetrical cylinders”. In very cold winter people walk about with scarves tightly wrapped around their face. In those cases no security issue arises, but the wearing of burqa raises security concern. Burqa is regarded as a symbol of male domination by the self-proclaimed torchbearers of liberty but they do not know that Islam gave women the rights that the west could not even think about till 20th century. Burqa is worn as a matter of choice. Nowadays young women choose to wear full veil seeing it as a powerful statement of identity, The parliaments of various European countries are voting to legislate the banning of the veils, In Switzerland a ban on minarets was imposed. The campaign against Islamic symbols is on the rise because of a sense of insecurity in some Europeans. A ban on the burqa is bound to widen the differences rather than bridging them. It will just encourage discrimination against Muslims in European society.

    There might be some Muslims who deny the niqab as having any legitimate basis in Islam, but when faced with evidence from Islamic traditions, I wonder, what evidence to they bring to support their preposterous arguments. And, Let’s for the sake of the argument say this has nothing to do with Islam, it still has everything to do with the right of women to determine for themselves how they want to dress. Not covering whole face or not is up to interpretation of various schools of thought and they shall be accountable on their intentions behind interpretation but I have numerous examples around me where women are doing complete veil and they are very much professional and active in every walk of life and living a very “respectable” and healthy life along with every contemporary suitable fashion and ornaments they may feel comfortable with.

  3. I admit that women have the right to dress as they please, regardless of Islam or not. The burka-ban is misguided. By limiting himself to four wives, the Muslim man denies many worthy Muslim women his sperm. Ironically, a Muslim woman has less chance to be the mother of a Sultan, than a non-Muslim woman. My religion teaches that Islam can only be destroyed by becoming more polygamous than the Muslim. Anyone can join by declaring:”Four wives is not enough”.

  4. Hey Iftikhar- I saw your same comment over at the National Post. Seems no one is buying your bullshit there either.

  5. “It’s a textile prison for the women who have to live under it,” he said. Wrong justification. The motive shouldn’t be the well-being of these skanks, but our discomfort, indignation and disgust.
