Supreme Court Ruling On Niqabs

Not crazy about it but the court of the land has ruled. Personally to me, it's not a religious garment and quite frankly it's an offensive one.

Nonetheless, I reckon the Supreme Court did the prudent thing in leaving it to the discretion of judges on a case by case basis.

In the end, we're not totalitarian and people are free to wear whatever they want. But maybe there's some meat to the notion that the courts should be strictly off limits for any kind of religious symbolism. You come to court, you come as a free-standing citizen. Period. This way, we ensure true equality in the interest of justice.
