Veiled justice

From the Daily Telegraph: Shabnam Mughal, a Muslim lawyer, refused to remove her veil in court after being asked to do so by the judge because he could not hear what she was saying. The case has been adjourned whilst the question is passed to a senior judge.

Miss Mughal, in her twenties, who was representing a Sikh businessman challenging the Government's refusal to permit his nephew to visit Britain, was not taking media calls yesterday. A colleague said she was upset by what had happened.
Well, ain't that a shame. I am sure she will feel better after she has sued.
