It seems that wearing a burqa in Australia is no longer a matter of freedom of religion or freedom of expression or freedom to dress as you like or any other kind of freedom. If you’re not a Muslima, and you wear a burqa, you are a “racist”, and may expect to be pushed around and spat upon.

Burqa-Clad Men Prompt Anger in Sydney
Ugly scenes erupted between a group of burqa-clad protesters and a Muslim man outside NSW State Parliament in Sydney today.
A group of men dressed in the veiled female garb as a publicity stunt to try and get the outfit banned.
Members of the group Faceless ventured into a Sydney CBD courthouse, pub and bank without drawing much reaction, but faced a stronger backlash later outside parliament.
“It’s got no place in Australia — it’s a front to a civilised country like Australia,” Faceless member Nicholas Folkes said of the burqa.
Nine News filmed a man outraged by the protesters, shouting in their faces and pulling off their veils.
“That’s what I think of you,” the man said after spitting on the ground.
The argument became more heated when a man connected to Faceless referred to the prophet Mohammed as “a rat”.
No one will be charged over the stunt.
