She chose to leave Pakistan where wearing a burka is acceptable and possibly mandatory in some regions. She chose to leave that life to a western nation where positive ID and respect of the laws are mandatory. Why should Canadians accept her culture? She left most of that in Pakistan.

Leave Burka in Pakistan and even better stay there and wear it. But even in most Muslim countries majority do not wear it and it is considered non religious fashion statement. It definitely isn't required by the Qur'an. If Allah didn't want woman to have a face he would not given her a face.

So the government is insisting that to become a Canadian citizen this Pakistani woman should remove her veil while she swears an oath of allegiance to an elderly German lady living in a palace 4000 miles away in London, who's own French moto is 'Dieu et mon droit' (God and my right)....

We can have a separate debate about the merits of immigration from religious countries but I think the Court came to the right conclusion on the narrow question on whether removing the veil was absolutely essential to taking the oath.

Simply stated, Canadians don't want offensive ideology brought from areas that have been flooded in controversy. Im with Canada on this take off the veil.
