CANADA Supreme Court cannot decide if Islamic full face-covering headbags should be allowed in the courtroom
CAIR-Canada welcomes the ‘non-decision’ decision.
CAIR-Canada was an intervener in the constitutional case which centered around two individual rights: the rights of accused persons to a fair trial and the right to religious freedom and expression. The alleged victim in the case, who can only be identified as N.S., wears a face-veil or niqab which covers everything but her eyes.
