Me and the wife were enjoying an afternoon of bank account draining fun (my account not hers!) at the Tuggeranong Hyperdome last Sunday. My wife finding a nice dress that didn’t leave much to the imagination in the cleavage department, she decided to change into it in the store and wear it in the mall – no worries doesn’t bother me or anyone else in our modern society in the slightest, Freedom of dress.
Well unfortunately I was wrong as when we were leaving, there was an older man with his family coming in the opposite direction to us. The man was clearly Muslim as he was wearing Muslim attire and his wife had a form of burka on. The man looked at my wife’s cleavage and his face twisted into a vicious ball of rage, he looked back up to her eyes and stared at her in a very angry and threatening manner. His eyes tracked hers and my wife was actually very scared and moved out of his way, I only noticed at the last minute and shouted out to him. He ignored me and kept walking but stared at my wife angrily as he walked away.
I have respect for other people’s beliefs and religions but this event really pushed me to the limit. The hate in the man’s eyes was unbelievable – and to express that hate towards a beautiful women??
Is it unfair that someone of a religion that is not native to Australia would impose their religious dress code on us here? Should other religions respect the rights of women and assimilate into our society by our laws and rules? What are people’s thoughts on this issue?
