A French woman who is identified as Marlene has committed the world’s first-known act of burqa rage since she lost her temper with an Emirati woman and ripped off her veil publicly in a store. Because of the outburst of the 63-year-old retired schoolteacher, she was sentenced three years in jail. She lost control when she saw the Emirati woman with the veil who is identified as Shaika, 26- and speaking in English. Marline feels attacked with the whole idea of the burqa saga and since she taught in the Middle East that makes her hates the Islamic Sharia in there.
Marlene stormed up to the Emirati woman demanding her to remove the veil and after her refusal to her demand that French woman tore off her veil after slapping, hitting and biting shaika’s hand. Eventually she shouted “Now I can see your face”. Shaika’s lawyer who came from the United Arab Emirates called it “racist attack”. After the thrashing, Shaika who was a three-year resident of Paris never wants to come back.
“The February attack came just months before France initiated a nationwide ban on wearing face-covering veils such as burqas in public. The ban won final approval from a high court earlier this month, but is not supposed to be enforced until six months from now”. Although it was legal to wear the veil at the time of the “burqa rage” incident, people now can face fines and jail time for donning the garment.”
Marlene stated that she will argue in court since she should be acquitted of the aggressive behavior since they do not wear burqa in France. She added “I just wanted to pull her burqa off. I know I shouldn’t have gotten angry, but I lost it.”
@Absology AbdulRahman Arif We should campaign for our sister, who got scratched and bitten because of her niqab in France. Treat her like a hero!
