A pregnant Muslim woman was ordered to remove her veil in court and was all upset and weepy afterwards.
The case was one of alleged abuse and violence from her ex-partner.
Okay, she wants it the Sharia way, here we go -
One, her evidence is worth half that of her ex-partner.
Two, men bashing women is fine and legal under Sharia so there is no case to answer.
Well, that saved the taxpayer some money. Keep the veil on, dear. Your adopted culture, your rules, your choice. Or take it off and try British law. Up to you. We can't appear in court with our faces covered here. It's our culture, innit? You want yours, fine, but take it all, not just the bits you like.
Oh, and the relevance of the pregnancy to the veil is simply this - if your pregnancy was not the responsibility of your partner, or even if it was and you're not married to him, then under Sharia law you get stoned to death.
In this country, bread is buttered on one side or the other. Choose your side.
