Oh but this never happens right? Citizenship ceremony got ‘heated’ over niqab #elxn42

This past July, a Muslim man got into a “screaming match” with federal citizenship officials who asked his wife to remove her niqab during the ceremony to take her oath.

According to several sources who witnessed the confrontation, but are not authorized to speak with media, the woman was willing to remove her face covering in order to become a Canadian citizen.

Her husband, however, refused to allow her to show her face.

As officials scrambled to explain the rules and get the ceremony underway, the man grew increasingly hostile and “abusive” with citizenship managers. He insisted they “enforce his wishes” that his wife remain veiled.

      Yes, under Trudeau/Mulcair landed-immigrant applicants will get extra points if they hate Canada.

  • Please don’t tell me that the husband and wife were both made Canadian anyway.

    They should have immediately packed his ass of the pisslamist shithole of the day, if she was willing to bin the head bag then let her stay. If she put it back on then send her off as well. In a free society people should not be afraid to show who they are. If pisslamist cannot control themselves then flush them.

    In my experience, it is the husband who will most likely object to his wife showing her face. Not so much the older men, but the younger men. Most women don’t mind. The ones who do mind seem to be again, the young women. And I get the sense it’s more for political reasons than religious reasons.
    I don’t believe it’s a religious requirement to begin with.

      Yes, I’ve read it’s something the Saudis invented.

    So the husband was made a Canadian citizen? If he was screaming at her, what was he saying? Were any threats of violence made against her? If so, does being mooselimb and screaming threats in Araby or whatever automatically confer a “get-out-of-jail free” card on the individual? What happened to the zero tolerance policy on domestic violence that the left so loves to bleat on about? I’m thinking that whoever did the screening on this couple screwed the pooch big time on this one.

    The staff had just witnessed domestic abuse as defined by OUR laws. Any arrests…..beuler…….beuler…………..I thought not.

    What genius decided this guy should be allowed to come to Canada in the first place? Of course he could have come from Soddy Barbaria as a student, then had a few anchor babies. A lot do. I she the niqab-clad wives pushing the anchor babies in strollers around the university.

      But the screaming husband is a Toronto Star subscriber.

    He must have been an Islamophobe, projecting his own propensity to rape uncovered meat upon all other men (or rather just Muslim men like himself).

    But as a multicultural country we are obliged to respect Sharia “law”, right?
