Not in my courtroom – judge throws out case after woman refuses to remove headscarf

13 Aug

The mother-of-three refused to take off the scarf and the hearing in Montreal, Canada, was adjourned.

She later said: “When she insisted I should remove my hijab, really I felt like she was talking with me as a human being.  I don’t want this thing to happen to any other lady. This is not the work of a judge. She doesn’t deserve to be a judge.

“When I’m sitting alone, I will cry, because always I’m remembering the judge, how she was talking to me. This scene is not going from my mind.”
