Ugly scenes erupted between a group of burqa-clad protesters and a Muslim man outside NSW State Parliament in Sydney today.
A group of men dressed in the veiled female garb as a publicity stunt to try and get the outfit banned.
Members of the group Faceless ventured into a Sydney CBD courthouse, pub
and bank without drawing much reaction, but faced a stronger backlash
later outside parliament.
"It's got no place in Australia — it's a front to a civilised country
like Australia," Faceless member Nicholas Folkes said of the burqa. http://www.news.ninemsn.com.au/national/8445547/burqa-clad-men-prompt-anger-in-sydney
