Belgium Burqa ignites

While wearing the garment is banned in public places since last July, the turbulent near Brussels arrest of a woman wearing a burqa is the source of great controversy in the political class.

Since July 2011 it is forbidden to wear the niqab or the burqa in public in Belgium . The offenders are liable to a fine of 137.5 euros, or sentence of seven days in jail (for now, only PV and fines have been prepared, no prison time was given). Last Thursday, deciding to enforce the law, which involved approximately 200 women across the country according to state security, police Jette, a town in the suburbs of Brussels , have arrested a woman dressed in the garb banned . As she accepted to discover that before another woman, she was taken to the police station Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, the bordering town. She then rebelled in the premises, each party sending the fault of the incident. Claiming to have acted in self defense, Stephanie Djato, a Belgian convert to Islam, admits giving a whim that broke the nose and two teeth of one of the police. In the evening, demonstrators threw bins and metal barriers on the police station to protest against the arrest. Friday night, another gathering took place before the police station, giving rise to new riots, despite the presence of elected and therefore a police deployment. Since then, the tension remains strong in the area.

Pre-election period
 the government quickly requested a full investigation. The case, which takes place during pre-campaign for municipal scheduled for October, is in fact quickly became political. The mayor of Molenbeek, Philippe Moureaux, vice president of the Socialist Party, has criticized the positions taken by critics of the Liberal party (MR), one of whose leaders, the Foreign Minister Didier Reynders, denounced the failure of integration policies from the left. " They do not do that for integration, but purely for political and electoral clearly they chose Sarko line. They saw that the right candidate in France had recovered from the electorate by hardening his speech on the immigration, the MR has adopted this strategy. The political morality, this is obviously the kind of thing that does not bother: you must do everything to win , "accuses Philippe Moureaux.
Sharia4Belgium against Vlaams Belang 
Sharia4Belgium, a small Islamist group, which is the cause of incidents outside the police station is itself accused of having raised tensions. His spokesman, Fouad Belkacem, for his part called the ban on wearing the niqab of discrimination against Muslims. " At the police station, they asked her to remove her niqabfor the search. She refused because our religion forbids to show her body to the disbelievers. The police have summoned three police officers who tore her niqab and his underwear "said he. " We have not an ounce of respect for you, unbelievers, nor for the way you live. Our religion and our way of life are superior to yours , "he quips, provocative. Tuesday, the Vlaams Belang , the Flemish far-right party (7.8% in the 2010 parliamentary), which in turn has thrown fuel on the fire. Deploring ironically that the police were afraid to enforce the law, it proposes to create a premium of 250 euros to anyone who would report to the police wearing aburqa or niqab . According to Filip Dewinter, one of the main leaders of the training, the introduction of such a premium would put pressure on authorities to ensure that police officers do enforce the ban. The anti-racist organizations have called on Wednesday to condemn the Belgian Government proposal.
