A judge in the Canadian province of Quebec has reportedly refused to hear the case of a woman who wore a hijab to the courtroom, according to CBC News.

Rania El-Alloul, a Muslim single mother arrived in court on Tuesday to plead with a judge to get her car back. The vehicle had been confiscated by an insurance agency after one of her three sons was caught driving without a license. She needed the car and had little money. “I’m facing money problems,” she told Judge Eliana Marengo. But before they could proceed, the judge told her the headscarf would not be allowed in her courtroom.

In Quebec, this sort of intolerance of hijab-wearing women isn’t new. In 2013, the Parti Québécois tried to push through a secular charter of values that would prohibit public servants from wearing religious symbols, such as the hijab, kippas, turbans, burkas, or large crosses. “‘Terrorist go back home,’ ‘you will get out of your veil, terrorist,’ all this kinds of stuff,” someone at a grocery store told day-care worker Hanadi Saad, according to the Globe News. “After September 11, there was a little of tension but it wasn’t like this.”

“Now it’s the worst and it’s getting worse and worse,” she said of the mood in Quebec following the proposed charter.

Une fois de plus, les athéegristes ont fait passer les Québécois pour des maudits colons sur la scène internationale.

Même Richard Martineau a dénoncé la décision du juge dans un article, la qualifiant « d’imbécile ».

Mais vous savez ce qu’il y a de plus ironique dans cette histoire ?

Plusieurs dizaines de personnes qui ont lu l’article de Richard Martineau ont laissé un commentaire l’accusant d’être trop tolérant avec les musulmans…

Au Québec, il y a beaucoup de cabochons qui s’imaginaient qu’avec une charte, il aurait été interdit de porter le voile pour aller faire son épicerie…

P.-S. Combien de juges ont interdit le port du carré rouge dans leur tribunal ? Pourtant, ils sont plus dangereux que les musulmans…
