Canadian backbencher apologies for insulting women wearing niqab

SHAFAQNA – The Independent Newspaper reported that ”  Canadian Conservative backbencher Larry Miller has apologised for saying Muslim women who do not want to remove their face coverings when taking the citizenship oath should “stay the hell where [they] come from”. The incident occurred on a local call-in radio show where there was an ongoing debate about Zunera Ishaq, a woman who is fighting in court for the right to wear the niqab at her citizenship ceremony. “Frankly if you’re not willing to show your face in a ceremony that you’re joining the best country in the world… if you don’t like that or don’t want to do that, stay the hell where you came from,” Miller said.”
