Another reason for banning Hijab/burkas

#1
NDON (AFP) - A female Muslim juror has been arrested in Britain after allegedly listening to an MP3 player under her hijab headscarf during a murder trial, police said Monday.

The woman in her early 20s was spotted by a fellow juror listening to music as she was meant to be helping try the case of a pensioner accused of bludgeoning his wife to death after 50 years of marriage.

She could now be charged with contempt of court and, if convicted, may be punished with an indefinite jail sentence and an unlimited fine.

Details emerged after the defendant was convicted and Judge Roger Chapple lifted a reporting restriction which prevented previous publication of the details for fear of disrupting proceedings.

The woman had repeatedly arrived late for hearings at Blackfriars Crown Court, central London, and prosecuting lawyer Peter Clarke asked for her to be dismissed.

The judge initially refused, saying it was not necessary, but a day later, he received a note from another juror suggesting that the woman may have been listening to music during the defendant's evidence.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said that police were called by a judge hearing a case at Blackfriars "regarding the inappropriate actions of a juror."

"A woman was arrested for contempt of court on the direction of the judge," he added. "Following the conclusion of the trial, the judge has requested that the matter be investigated."

Lawyer Benn Maguire, a member of the team prosecuting the murder case, said: "It is unique for all those who are connected with this court to experience a situation where the juror is suspected of listening to a MP3 player under her Islamic headgear."

He added that he expected the woman would go to prison if she was charged and found guilty of contempt.

That wasn't the impression that I gained from the radio report I first heard of this on. It said he was convicted anyway after they pinged her. I assume there is some sort of legal contingency for losing a juror.

Maybe she's not so strict?

That's what the ninja suit is all about though isn't it, as far as I am aware, there is no religious obligation to wear it, it's more of an extreme culteral thing.

And it's been adopted by young muslims, even though many of their more moderate parents never wore it.

Just cherry picking then? I'll have the hijab but not the ban on music.
When no one dares ask you to justify yourself, you can pick and choose whatever you want regardless of what moral standards you violate, without fear of reprisal.

You could not make it up FFS :pissedoff:

Like the fecking failed London bomber escaping dressed in a veil and no one thinking to ask them to identify themselves. :pissedoff:

(Where does he stand within Islamac laws wearing a woman's clothes?)

Its only a matter of time before they will have to remove the veil for most interactions then making it pointless, these idiots do themselves and their peers no favours :sleepy:

Also how long before some pikey thinks of wearing this outfit to hold up their local Bank? :omg: :roll:

"Does my bomb look big in this"

She wont go down I'll bet you, and if she does there will be an outcry from the poor oppressed Muslims. They cant kill goats in the street, cant wear 'traditional' dress, cant Honour Kill their women, cant pray on a loaded airoplane just before takeoff...

what?

Yes, not worth using up a new thread for, but relevent because of the passages I've highlighted...

The Newcastle Sunday Sun said:
A young Muslim was booted off a plane at a North airport after asking cabin crew if he could pray before his flight, we can reveal.
The incident happened when the country was on high alert last weekend after an alleged terrorist attack at Glasgow airport.

A source told us that the man - who has not been named - boarded a Thomsonfly flight at Newcastle International Airport bound for a holiday in Malaga, Spain, with friends.

He asked staff if he could go in the galley area - which can be curtained off from passengers - and offer prayers before the flight took off.

However - according to our source - the flight attendant asked the plane's captain who promptly ordered the man off the aircraft.

Northumbria Police officers were waiting for the man in the departure lounge and searched him under terrorism laws.

All they found was a bottle of water, used by Muslims to wash themselves before prayer, a compass to ensure he was facing the holy city of Mecca, and a traditional prayer-mat.

The flight - TOM 4125 from Newcastle to Malaga - took off an hour later than its scheduled 4.20pm departure time last Sunday.

A spokeswoman for Thomson said: "The captain has the right to remove passengers from a flight if he feels their behaviour is detrimental to other customers. For legal reasons, we are unable to comment any further."

A Northumbria Police spokeswoman said: "We were called to the airport just before 5.15pm on Sunday after concerns were raised about a passenger.

"We attended and searched the man and found that no offence had been committed and everything was in order. The man was not arrested."

Azad Ali, executive leader of the counter-terrorism section of the Muslim Safety Forum, which liaises with police forces, appealed through the Sunday Sun for the man to come forward.

He said: "If the man feels hard done by then he will be upset by this.

"If he feels it difficult to gain resolution in Newcastle he can log onto our website and email us his details.

"We will then go to the Association of Chief Police Officers and ask them to look into it.

"However, it looks as if the airline itself is guilty of over reaction in this incident.

"There is a tendency for some people to blame an entire community for the actions of individuals. It's guilt by association."


The drama unfolded at a time that the security level was at its highest following the abortive car bombs found in London and the attack on Glasgow Airport where two men drove a Jeep Cherokee into the main terminal building.

The vehicle had gas cylinders on board . . . which have the potential to cause huge explosions. It is believed the gas cylinders and the car came from Teesside.

A total of eight suspects, all of them connected with the NHS, have been arrested since the Glasgow airport attack and the two failed car bombs discovered in central London the previous day.
So, a pilot who refuses to let somone hold up a plane because they have decided they need to pray (and if you said you needed to shit at that point the answer would be the same) is guilty of 'Guilt by association' and the Association of Chief Police Officers must investigate?

That's the impression I got. Or she might just be an ugly bitch.
Like the scene from Hot Fuzz:

"Why does'nt she want us to see her face?"

"'Cos she's fcuk ugly."

Mmm, compass on an airplane, thats going to work.

I doubt she'll get a sentance, maybe just a slap on the wrist.

As for the case, they have "spare" jurors who sit in on the case and fill in if poeple are ill, or in contempt. The judgment should be sound as far as this is concerned.
