In Australia they are currently changing the legislation that would give police the power to ask people to remove head coverings. If they cannot identify the person, how do they know they really have a license?
The fines in France for wearing a burqa in public, which is completely banned, is $202. Australia plan to make it a mandatory one year jail sentence for failing t remove the burqa or a $5500 fine!
For now, there is a legal loophole that is preventing officers from identifying suspected criminals. It is a complicated topic but in reality, if you are asked to prove your identification by the law enforcement wherever, you should comply, regardless of religious beliefs.
