Police Uniforms NOT Uniform

Whether it’s worn by a police officer, hockey player, usher, or soldier, surely the ostensible reason for donning a uniform is to have, well…. uniformity!?

But things are changing in regard to uniforms at that ever-sensitive “service” formerly known as the Toronto police force.

Indeed, the police have announced they’re going to accommodate Muslim policewomen who want to wear the hijab on duty.

Some might hail such a move as another shining example of “reasonable accommodation”. Others, count me among them — look upon this directive as another assault against our Canadian traditions.

Yet again, another public institution appears to be bowing to the tyranny of political correctness — bending over backwards to accommodate certain individuals, some of whom are quite unaccommodating of western values.

The question arises:  What’s driving this directive? Why is it important for the police to have hijab-wearing policewomen in the first place?

Muslim police British” Policewomen! 

Contrary to widespread popular belief, the Qur’an does not mandate Muslim women to wear the hijab.

In this regard, the apparel accommodation isn’t the same as allowing a Sikh to wear a turban.

(I’d also argue there’s an historical reason for permitting Sikhs to wear turbans, given that Sikh military brigades have long been an integral part of the British Empire.) (ELN editor disagrees)

If anything, the hijab is a political statement and a symbol of fundamentalism.

In some cases, a woman wearing such a headscarf is being pressured by her family to do so (case in point, the dearly departed Aqsa Parvez.)

Either way, seeing such a garment as part of a police uniform is odd. Imagine if a citizen was to call the cops regarding a suspected “honour” killing in the neighbourhood and the policewoman who responds is decked out in a hijab? Would this not be unsettling?

Or a real honor killing: Multiple honor killings in Canada: “God’s curse on them for generations. May the devil … (expletive) on their graves … They betrayed Islam.”

Also, the police have surely put themselves in a sticky situation regarding haberdashery accommodation.

For example, if a female police officer demands that she be allowed to wear a niqab or a burqa, how could such a request possibly be denied, given the precedent that’s been set with the hijab?

Indeed, just how far do we take “reasonable accommodation” in the police department?

Do Muslim police officers reserve the right not to work with the Canine Unit, given that many Muslims consider dogs “unclean”?

Will ham sandwiches be banned from police stations due to dietary restrictions?

As well, is there not a profound double-standard at play here? 

English: Police Car in Toronto Deutsch: Polize...
Toronto Police Cruiser Deutsch: Polizei Auto in Toronto

For example, here’s a scenario I’d find most amusing to observe:

Imagine “Constable Duncan MacDonald,” who is of Scottish heritage, waltzes into the station tomorrow decked out in a ceremonial kilt, complete with sporran. How many nanoseconds would tick by before P.C. MacDonald is hauled before a supervisor and sternly disciplined?

Something is indeed rotten these days when it comes to sensitivity issues.

Consider the plight of Tarek Fatah. This moderate Muslim author has been subjected to written death threats from radical Muslims, yet the police have decided not to lay charges.

And, full disclosure: Last summer at Toronto’s Yonge Dundas Square, your correspondent was punched in the face by a hijab-wearing woman who objected to me taking pictures. Even though the assault was photographed and eye-witnessed… police declined to lay charges.

  1. Punched in the face? Sue the police, the city, and the state! Next time David goes out on the streets, invite me along. 🙂 I guess the woman you threw the punch likes the fact that she is seen in many of her fellow muslom’s eyes as a piece of property, and not a human being.

    1. The assault occurred this past summer, and even made the British newspapers.

      Toronto cops are so afraid of “making waves” in today’s retrograde p.c. environment. Cops are more prone than ever before to ignore obvious crimes taking place in front of their eyes, as was in this description of events.

      One can imagine a cop trying to chase down a bank robbing burka-clad woman with half-hearted strides in the hope she makes a successful escape, thus avoiding all the paperwork explaining why he had to arrest a Muslim woman.
