Burqa ban: "We don't want another Cronulla"
by Vanessa Watson
A push to "ban the burqa" has resurfaced from South Australian Liberal senator Cory Bernardi, drawing condemnation from some corners of the western suburbs.
In the wake of the counter-terrorism operation on September 18, Senator Bernardi - who was behind an anti-burqa push in 2010 - took to Twitter to describe the burqa as a "shroud of oppression" and a "flag of fundamentalism".
"Note burqa wearers in some of the houses raided this morning? This shroud of oppression and flag of fundamentalism is not right in Aust [sic]," Senator Bernardi wrote.
