Right-wing populist protested: With Burka into parliament

Friday, August 18th, 2017 | World News

Full-fledged with a burka, the chairman of the Australian right-wing party One Nation has put itself in her place in the Australian parliament. For years, Pauline Hanson has tried to enforce a nationwide Burka ban.

In her action on Thursday, the 63-year-old had completely veiled her body and face with a black veil, as women in conservative Islamic countries wear it. In this gap she sat in her seat in the Senate, the upper house of the Australian Parliament.

"Shame" for the Parliament
Hanson wanted to emphasize their demand that the wearing of the Burka should be prohibited in public. The protests triggered protests from the other parties. Australia's conservative Justice Minister George Brandis accused the right-wing populist of sowing discord. "I would be very, very careful to offend the religious feelings of other Australians." At the same time, he said, "We will not forbid the burqa."

Hanson took the veil off to ask a question to the government. She left the Senate unveiled, with the burqa in her hand. A Muslim senator of the opposition Labor Party, Sam Dastyari, described her as "disgrace" for the parliament. One Nation has four seats in the Senate. For many years, the party has been calling for a Burqa ban and an immigration stop for Muslims.
