Anne-Katrin Ångnell has written a letter to the editor on the DN View, where she will with the remarkable proposals on how the Swedish government to manage the ”problem” with the muslim veil.
the Idea to criminalise the wearing of the muslim headscarf, hijaben (for it is the muslim veil that is ”criminal”, not the catholic, orthodox christian, orthodox jewish, or hindu) is absurd, but the surprises hardly.
Anne-Katrin Ångnell compare slöjbärande with sex and thus calls for a statutory ”slöjmyndighetsålder” and a ”samtyckeslag” which will regulate the clothes we wear. Hijaben cause either sexual harassment or unwanted pregnancies. It is not so becoming children.
to, or constitutes a protection against, sexual harassment. Letters to the editor writer makes a connection between child marriage and the veil, despite the fact that these do not have to do with each other. Girls and women – muslim, christian, hindu and others – are married off against their will, whether they wear veil or not. The veil in itself is no magical piece of cloth that causes or protects against forced marriages.
Possibly the strangest reason that the author wants to make criminals of the muslim slöjbärande women is to protect them from hate crimes. The victim shall be punished now? I fail to understand the logic behind the argument.
If we disregard the fact that Anne-Katrin Ångnells proposal is contrary to the UN's child convention, the Swedish constitution and the european Convention, she offers no proposals for concrete measures on how her ideas should be enforced in everyday life. But it's probably not the point.
the texts, ”bill” and the new nifty problem formulations, is to demonise the muslim girl/woman, and by extension, the muslim man, in the eyes of the public.
It is stigmatising and omyndigförklara them to the degree that discrimination against muslims in the labour market, the housing market, and the verbal and physical abuse they face daily on our streets, hospitals, government, will become the new the normality.
Crime prevention council continuous mapping of hate crimes, with the first motif represents a gloomy read. Unsurprisingly, it is precisely the muslim women who suffer the most. Police awkwardness in the investigation and solution of the type of hate crime is to say the least disappointing.
muslim women have in recent years become trendy, and it is often made of the supposed kvinnorättskämpar. The hatred against muslims is as prevalent as it is denied, while the hate crime against muslim individuals and objects in Sweden is increasing.
It is high time for the government and parliament to deal with the problem seriously.
