Ban The Burqa & Niqab Says Highly Respected Human Rights Activist Ensaf Haidar

After newly becoming a Canadian citizen, and spending years advocating for the freedom of her husband Raif Badawi who is currently jailed by the ruthless Saudi government, Haidar is warning Canadians about “Islamist groups loyal to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Saudi clergy imposing the Burqa and enforcing Niqab on girls and women as political flags to mark jihadi territory.”

Ensaf Haidar – one of the world’s most respected activists for freedom and human rights, and a courageous critic of Islamism – is calling for Ontario Premier Doug Ford to introduce a ban on the niqab and burqa, similar to what was implemented in Quebec with Bill 62.

Haidar became a Canadian citizen on Canada Day, and has lived in Canada with her children since 2015. She fled Saudi Arabia a few years after her husband Raif Badawi was jailed for “insulting islam through electronic channels,” which is a ‘crime’ under the horrible Saudi regime. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, and 1,000 lashes.

Since coming to Canada, Haidar has advocated relentlessly for her husband’s release, and has also been warning Canadians and the western world about the threat of the Islamist ideology.

Here’s what Haidar said in a statement about her call for a Burqa and Niqab ban:

“As a Canadian who was born in Saudi Arabia under laws of Sharia where human rights are non-existent, I realised the power mysognist men [have] over powerless women with no rights.

As a refugee in Quebec and Canada I have noticed the fast growth of Islamist groups loyal to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Saudi clergy imposing the Burqa and enforcing Niqab on girls and women as political flags to mark jihadi territory.

Nowhere in Islam is a woman required to cover her face. This is medievalist mysoginy [sic] that treats women as animals and property of men and shamed into attire that befits slavery, not humanity.

It is for this reason that on the first day as a Canadian I have raised the issue of banning the Burqa and Niqab in Ontario as I feel Premier Ford is a man who will listen to my plea and end the war by deception being waged by Islamists against Canadian values.”

Ensaf Haidar is a true example of someone who is a living representation of true Canadian values. She understands what it means to be Canadian far more than cowardly politicians like Justin Trudeau.

Having experienced life under an Islamist regime, Haidar’s warnings about the rise of Islamist groups here in Canada should be heeded by all Canadians, and her call for a niqab and burqa ban should implemented.

Canada has the right to say what is and isn’t acceptable in our country, and polls show the majority of Canadians agree with Haidar and think the burqa and niqab don’t belong in public in our country.

Even though the politicians and the elites want to ignore the threat of Islamism doesn’t mean that the threat has gone away, and we must listen to Ensaf Haidar’s warnings before it is too late.
