The Norwegian government has rejected a proposal to allow female police officers to wear a Muslim headbag (hijab) while on duty.
On Islam (h/t Susan K) “The government…decided that religious symbols would not be allowed to be used in connection with police uniforms,” Culture Minister Hadia Tajik told a press conference cited by The New Age.
A government-appointed commission had proposed to allow female police officers and judges to wear hijab while on duty. “The commission has had a broad mandate,” said Tajik, the first Muslim minister in the Norwegian history. ”They have raised the issue of religious symbols and uniforms.”
The commission head Sturla Stalsett has earlier said that the entire 15-member panel believed that the government should allow the hijab to be worn by Muslim women police officers. But the minister said that a similar proposal to allow hijab for policewoman was rejected by the government in 2009. She insisted that she did not envision a change “in the foreseeable future.”
In 2009, the Norwegian government announced plans to allow police women to don the hijab. But the ruling coalition quickly backtracked over opposition from the right wing Progress Party.
Several European countries, including Sweden and Britain, as well as Canada and New York City already allow Muslim female police officers to wear hijabs.
In the UK, not only do they allow Muslim police officers to wear headbags, they force non-Muslim female officers to participate in ’Empathy’ training where police officers from Sheffield, UK, were ordered to dress up as Muslim women for the day to ‘see how it felt.’
The Opinionator In an outrageous step that should cause blood to shoot out of your eyes comes the news that what is touted as “political correctness” finds Great Britain’s Somerset and Avon police services permanently issuing color coordinated veils to NON MUSLIM female police officers and community support officers.
Supposedly the veils are to be worn when entering a mosque but one has to wonder just how often non-muslim female police actually have to go inside a mosque or is this a more likely step in a dhimmified police facilitating the Islamisation of Great Britain?
The bragging, dhimwitted Assistant Chief Constable Jackie Roberts swoons over the (not mandated by the Qur’an) veil and states:
“‘Producing head coverings for our officers and staff to wear in places of worship is part of our commitment to engage with all our communities. It recognises and respects the cultural and religious practices of our communities. This is a very positive addition to the Avon and Somerset uniform and one which I’m sure will be a welcome item for many of our officers.”
No surprise that muslim men are exhilarated at the sight of these Islamicized non-muslim females – females who supposedly hold positions of authority.
In Canada, Sun News commentator Ezra Levant had this to say about ‘hijabi’ police officer:
“Imagine you call the police because you believe there’s an honour killing, God forbid, in your neighbourhood — and a police woman shows up with the Toronto Police Service and she’s wearing a hijab.”
“I am critical of radical Islam, and if I had a police woman come to me wearing the hijab trying to arrest me, I would say, ‘You’re not arresting me as a cop. You’re arresting me as Muslim (who probably thinks honor killings are just fine under sharia law) I mean what’s next? A full-face covering niqab? My view is if you are a secular officer of the law, come and enforce the law. If you want to be a priest or a rabbi or an imam, go to your mosque or church or synagogue.”
Unbeknownst to even most of us New Yorkers, NYPD Muslim female police officers are now allowed to wear headbags, approved no doubt by the extreme dhimmi Mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg.
