The dangers of wearing a Burqa.. (video)


If you insist on wearing a burqa, whether you are Jewish or Muslim, be very careful when driving a go-kart. You might want to consider hiking up the robe a bit and tie it up around your leg...

The other day, in Australia, a 24 year old woman wearing a burqa got killed in a freak accident. She was riding a go-kart while wearing a burqa. Her robe got caught in the tire.

She ended up being strangled by her robes and died.

A young Muslim woman had died after her burkha became snagged in a go-kart.

The 24-year-old woman, who has not yet been named, died a terrifying death today when a fluttering part of her burkha became caught in the wheels of a go-kart she was driving near the town of Port Stephens, north of Sydney.

The Muslim clothing the woman was wearing flew back as she sped around the track and part of it became entangled in the go-kart's wheels.

She was strangled in a second and crashed the vehicle.

Despite the efforts of paramedics who rushed to her aid, the neck and throat injuries she suffered were so severe that doctors were unable to revive her when she arrived at the John Hunter Hospital in the New South Wales city of Newcastle.

The young woman was riding the go-kart at a popular recreational area known as Bob's Farm, which offers rides of up to 15 minutes at a time.

Her death is being likened to that of American dancer Isadora Duncan, acknowledged as being the creator of modern dance, and who was famous for the flowing silk carves she liked to wear.

But while riding in an open-top car in Nice in 1927, her scarf became entangled in one of the vehicle's spoked wheels and she was strangled.

Compare this woman, to these Iranian female "police-women in training"... (hattip to DoubleTapper)

  1. I've always had similar fears with tzitzit and bikes.

  2. Years ago in Toronto a child was on a playground slide. The ends of his scarf got trapped in the little space between the slide and the platform. It tightened the scarf around his neck and no one noticed he was stuck up there until too late.

  4. Obviously, in the spirit of Multi-culturalism, we should have Health and Safety ban the use of Go-Karts until they can be made Burka friendly. We should not expect the religious females to suffer the deprivation of missing out on the joy of riding a Go-Kart if they aren't safe for them.

    1. I Agree, or they just be mindful of your dress when getting on the go carts. I wear the abaya, without the face veil, and anytime I am around something that can be hazardous I always take proper precautions.
