Australia: Death threats for call to remove hijab

Islamic Tolerance Alert from Oz: “Hijab removal call prompts death threats,” from AAP, January 16 (thanks to all who sent this in):

The Brisbane radio announcer who suggested the hijab be removed in banks and shops has received death threats.4BC announcer Michael Smith on Wednesday said wearing a face-covering such as some Muslim women do posed a security risk because it made identification difficult in the event of a crime.

Wearing a face-veil in certain places, such as shopping centres, was also offensive and scared little children, he said.

In a recorded threat on the station website a caller says “you’re head is on a plate (expletive beeped). You’re going to be dead soon (expletive beeped), racist bitch”….

 

Feel the love.
