The conservative government of Canada has devised a draft of constitution which will restrict Muslim women who wear scarf to poll their votes. This debate was going along for some time in Canada, and a tussle was going on between Election Commission of Canada and the Canadian government, and now they have decided to take this decision, and only those people will be exempted from these laws, who have some provable medical reasons to hide their face.
This debate regarding scarf was started in the Quebec province of Canada, where mainly French language is spoken in last year’s September, and which has formed the basis for this Draconian law. Canada’s image was very nice in the outside world, and it was considered a democratic, tolerant, broad-minded, secular, non-religious and congenial country, but this law has negated all those images, and now Canada is just yet another Western country.
One wonders where all those so-called democratic norms and traditions have gone. The truth is that instead of Muslim countries, Western Christian states are very rigid and anti-Muslims and they are highly intolerant of what Muslims represent. They cannot for the heck of it tolerate Hijabs and beards, and that is why Canada has unmasked herself and joined the league. Muslim countries are not fundamentalists and rigid, rather they are busy like hell in mimicking the superficial Western values, and trying to copycat their apparent traditions.
The hypocrite and dual approach of Western governments is beyond comprehension. Scarf is also worn by the Christians nuns, and even common people wear it in Canada, where temperature often remains at freezing point. Incidentally, no Canadian or any other Muslim organization has voiced their reaction against this law, and don’t talk about OIC, because OIC is just another puppet of US.
