It is she who designs the new police veil
RELIGIOUS POLICE: At medium term, the majority of religious headgear shall be allowed to be part of the swedish police uniform, among others the moslem veil, and right now designer Iman Aldebe is working to get it made.
‘If the police veil is attractive and fits the swedish police uniform, then I actually believe that it will give women in veil more acceptance out in working life’, she says.
Rikspolisstyrelsen [rik = (german) reich, styrelse = administration] has also ordered specially designed kippahs and turbans.
‘As there now is a police student wearing a headscarf, and there also is [mohammedan, I would assume] civilian staff which have been wearing plain clothes, we now purchase this as part of the uniform’, says Martin Lundin, Rikspolisstyrelsen.
Iman Aldebe is the daughter of Mahmoud Aldebe, speaker of Sweden’s moslem association and the man behind a letter demanding special moslem legislation, which was sent to all Riksdag [(german) reichstag] parties in 2006. In october of 2009, Mahmoud [Aldebe] informed that he would run as a Riksdag candidiate for Centerpartiet in Stockholm, which caused criticism by several leading members within the party, who thought that he had a lacking notion of democracy. In november 2009, he withdrew his candidacy, and in january 2010, he even terminated his party membership.
His similarly religious wife, however, continues to be a Centerparti member, pleading for the implementation of certain sharia laws in Sweden.
