Second woman files human rights complaint in fight to have face covered during citizenship ceremony

A second Muslim woman is challenging a government policy that prohibits people from covering their faces while swearing the oath of citizenship.

In a complaint filed with the Canadian Human Rights Commission, Maiia Mykolayivna Zaafrane says she was discriminated against on the basis of religion when she was not allowed to participate in a citizenship ceremony because she refused to remove her niqab, a garment that covers her head and face, except her eyes.


Ship her back to whatever Muslim hellhole spawned her.

  • WalterBannon

    As far as I am concerned then, she just failed the citizenship test, and her trial basis here is over. Ship her back. Commence the deportation process at once.

    • Exactly.

    • The baghead is a Ukrainian convert. Send her to fight Putin.

    • Cheryl

      Please run for Prime Minister, you have my vote!

  • David Murrell

    One would hope that this tawdry bit of pseudo-human-rights theatre might make it into the election campaign. One can be sure Truudeau and Mulcair –and their media cronies –would support the tent-woman.

    And in a related story, a fifteen year old multi-cultural boy has been arrested for the fifth time for armed robbery while wearing a burka. He was out on bail at the time of his arrest today. He apparently is part of a multi-cultural gang that is going around Toronto dressed in burkas committing violent offences. Can’t wait for all those Syrians to arrive in Toronto and add to the fun. And Go transit trains are stopped amid transportation chaos in Toronto. as police investigate a possible bomb on the tracks. Good practice I say when Toronto swells with muslims.

      We should nuke Toronto with old Beaumarc missiles.

      • Icebow

        I thought that was ‘Bomarc’. BCF’s in Toronto!

        • mobuyus

          Thanks. I think by the time I ever dig up an old Bomarc BCF will have long abandoned Toronto.

      It’s a nice diversion from fetal alcohol syndromed natives.

      • Maggat

        Nasty, nasty, nasty, but true.

    • jayme

      I don’t know how bad things are in Toronto now but in Ottawa were at a tipping point and yet the left wants thousands of Syrians brought in.

      • Shebel

        Apparently , the word Patriot has been replaced by the word Submit.

    • Well yes we do need to become more culturally sensitive to their need to murder infidels for Allah.

  • Icebow

    ‘Ship her back to whatever Muslim hellhole spawned her.’
    Nothing to add.

  • Allan

    What the hell is wrong with us? Why do we tolerate this B.S.? Wearing a”tent” or a niqab or whatever is NOT a religious duty. It is cultural. NOWHERE in the Hadith or the Quran does it say that wearing a niqab is a religious obligation. Instead these idiot human rights a**holes, just accept her word for it and go off on their merry way. Bunch of a**hats.

      Lawyers need billable hours.

      • mobuyus

        That’s not all they need.

    • I wouldn’t care if it was one. Ripping the beating hearts out of living victims was an Aztec religious duty and I don’t think we should be having too much of that in Canada either.

      • Exile1981

        Don’t be too hasty about that. I can think of a couple people that i’d like to encourage to participate in an aztec ritual. Having their hearts removed could be a good thing for society.

  • Mr_bigstuff

    She’ll win – Queers non whites and moslems always win – The only losers are the long suffering ‘real’ Canadian taxpayers- I am so disgusted with the way my once great country is going right down the toilet- I could weep-

    • G

      Of course she’ll win. Judges aren’t even PRETENDING to be unbiased anymore. They make up their mind about how they are going to decide before they even read or hear a word of argument.

      The only question in any case is which facts they will cherry pick to justify the decision they’ve already made.
      And of lawyers weren’t such total scumbags they would be admitting it.

  • Xavier

    Say, anyone want to join my religion? It’s only requirement is that adherents have to wear an AR-15 at all times.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I will if it means I don’t have to listen to classic rock radio like 92 SHITTI FM when I am at work.

      • mobuyus

        I have destroyed many radios at work and I am a music loving Musician.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          That means when you hear music you hate it really rankles you doesn’t it?
          Some people live with music like it’s muzak.

          • mobuyus

            That plus radios tuned to different stations trying to drown each other out. I have booted them I have shot them and I have put them beyond use.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Right on!
            Anger is an energy.

        • Xavier

          I used to crazy glue the tuner to Rush Limbaugh. It was quite amusing to watch muzak-loving liberals destroy their own radios. Extra points if you glue the volume knob/on-off switch too.

            Musak’d Pink Floyd drove me to drink.

            That flash at the sound of lies….

    May I donate my air Canada points?

    This will never end until shariah law is declared supreme on Canadian soil, or all traitorous Mohammedans are removed from Canadian soil, one or the other.

    • Shebel

      Too bad that Justin does not recognize this as a Truth.

  • Shebel

    You are such a good little girl. Keep your body hidden if you don’t want to get raped by devout Muslims. For your information –this is what your glorious Jihadis envision in the Eternal afterlife— and YOU ain’t there—-

  • pdxnag

    The only accommodation: “We will exclude Muslim males from the ceremony so that they will not rape you for showing your face or hair or ankles or eyes.”

    • Shebel

      That is sooo true and so perceptive.

      No Muslim Males allowed at citizenship ceremonies because they might go crazy and rape someone.

      There is absolutely no reason for females to hide their bodies in Canada —unless Devout Muslim Males are lurking in the weeds.

    ‘ She declined an interview request.’

    Not only did she turn down the National Post’s request for an interview, she’ll go on to, like her predecessor Zunera Ishaq, write a column in the Toronto Star.

  • Gary

    Most muslims wait until they are a Citizen and THEN sue Canada for a trumped up charge of islamophobia.

    Just wait until this parasite become a Citizen and globe trots like the Arar’s did and then sue us once this closet islamist get in trouble.

    She will be a career victim in Canada and coach her children to bilk the system , terrorism works so muslims don’t have to.

  • Canadian

    Her niqab has nothing to do with religion or islam.
