Burqa debate: Jacqui Lambie goes head-to-head with female Islamic leader on Sunrise
by Latika Bourke
Jacqui Lambie says the burqa must be banned from the nation's streets so Muslim women's "body language" can be identified.
The outspoken Palmer United senator, who claims Islamic law "involves terrorism", went head-to-head with Maha Abdo from the Muslim Women's Association on Channel Seven's breakfast television show Sunrise. During the exchange the senator was at times unable to answer questions, citing hearing difficulties.
Senator Lambie told Ms Abdo that she wanted the burqa banned because it was important to know if it was a man or a woman underneath the garment.
