Muslim woman who refused to remove her burka to testify against man accused of abusing her is warned by German judge SHE will be jailed if she does not comply

A Muslim woman who refused to remove her burka to testify against a man accused of abusing her has been warned by a German judge she will be jailed if she does not comply.

Amira Behari, 43, refused to reveal her face at the State Court in Munich last year when she appeared to testify against a man who allegedly abused her in a train station.

The man, identified only as Kai.O, allegedly called her an 'a******e' and told her to 'go back to where you belong.'

Judge Thomas Mueller said at the original hearing in November he wanted to see her face to 'read her emotions,' adding: 'I need to see you otherwise there will be considerable problems in adjudicating your case.'

Behari refused, saying: 'I have a God at the end of the world who will see me right at the end. I will not do this.'

In court she wore a niqab, which is an ultra-burka with only a gap for the eyes. She also wore gloves and a long leather coat. [242 comments]

[TOP RATED COMMENT 3571 votes] How can we be sure there's a woman under that burka?

[2ND 3441] As a Muslim, stuff like this REALLY annoys me! The burka is CULTURAL not religious, and even in our religion it states you can remove your hijab (headscarf) for identification purposes - so why do these Muslims make it difficult for themselves and everyone around them, and in the process they just give the rest of us Muslims a bad name!!!! Ugh.

[3RD 2891] Ban it full stop

[4TH 2491] What an idiot- ban it and jail her.

[5TH 2221] Don't ask her. Just remove it!

[6TH 2197] She should have been jailed for contempt of court the first time she refused the judge's request to remove it. It not only prevents the judge from gauging her emotions, but also makes identification difficult, if not impossible. This is the exact reason why the burka/niqab MUST be banned forthwith.
