Ban the Burqa: Gatineau father accused of ‘honour-based’ violence against daughter

A Gatineau man is accused of “honour-based” violence against his daughter for not wearing her hijab in public.

Police say the teenager told authorities she had suffered repeated violence by her father for more than a year. And when he learned that his daughter was removing her hijab as soon as left the family home, the violence escalated.

Police spokesperson Jean-Paul Lemay said this was the first such case in Gatineau and encouraged any other women who might be victims of similar behaviour to come forward.

Islam is a horrid, violent cult. Why do dangerous idiots like our politicians lie about it?
