Abdul Rasheed Khalid, owner of Zaibi Jewellers, in Brampton, poses with empty display cases. He was bound and hit several times during a robbery last Friday, the latest in a series of GTA jewellery store heists.
Toronto Star: Jewel heists target Asians
One recent robbery included a male thief disguised in a head-to-toe burqa
Abdul Rasheed Khalid was alone in his Brampton jewellery store filling the display cases with yellow gold rings and necklaces when two people, one wearing a head-to-toe black burqa, appeared outside his locked door.
“Salamu alaikum,” the 58-year-old store owner said after pushing the entry buzzer, believing them to be a Muslim couple. There was no reply, and seconds later the pair â€” both males â€” forced him at gunpoint to the back office where he was bound with duct tape and hit several times. Then his store was cleaned out.”Keep quiet, keep quiet, close your eyes,” they said, while emptying the red velvet trays into duffel bags carried by an accomplice. Khalid caught a glimpse of the crooks. He thinks they were Pakistani or Indian.
Now, we have demonstrated why the Dutch have attempted to outlaw the public wearing of the Burqa.
And the disaffected South Asian Youth gangs who have allegedly perpetrated these crimes?
Well, they know how to cover-up the Muslim Way………
Will Canada now pass an anti-Burqa law?
Not a chance……
Canada prides itself on its multi-culturalism and this might be offensive – even as they are robbed BLIND.
