Australian senator wears burqa inside parliament, stirs up controversy

Melbourne, Aug 18:-- The leader of Australia's far right One Nation party, Pauline Hanson, stirred up a controversy in the parliament after she arrived there wearing a burqa, reports said.


Hanson and her party is campaigning for the removal of the full-face veil from Australia and her action was deemed to be 'ridiculing a community'.


She also received caution from government minister George Brandis, who condemned her stunt.


"To ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its religious garments, is an appalling thing to do and I would ask you reflect on what you have done," said Brandis, who also happens to be Australia's attorney-general.
