Paris: Police Called When Muslim Objects to His Wife Being Assisted by Male Doctor During Childbirth
by Cheradenine Zakalwe
I want to report about a revolting incident that occurred almost right in front of me: day-to-day Islamic sexism in a maternity ward.
The facts: in the heart of Paris, my wife was in a labour and delivery room. Throughout the childbirth area, we were wearing blue clothes that were supposed to help minimise biological contamination.
I came out of the room and walked right into a big revolver in its holster, in the belt of a uniformed police officer. Astonished, I walked forward and saw that a group of three police officers was engaged in a discussion with several members of staff.
