Senate debates banning the burqa

September 14, 2017

Senator Cory Bernardi has continued his 7-year campaign to ban the burqa, speaking in the senate today in support of a bill for a federal ban.

The Australian Conservatives founder described the burqa as a "flag of fundamentalism", insisting those who wear it are directly challenging Australian values.

"If you want to identify where the radical threats are in your society, look for the individual wearing the burqa," he said.

"No moderate Muslim wears the burqa. They are fundamentalists."

It was also a dehumanising garment that reduced women to the property of their husbands, and those migrating to Australia should not come here to recreate the life they left, Senator Bernardi said.
