Rania was in courtroom to to apply to get her car back after it was seized by Quebec's automobile insurance board. Sameer Zuberi, a board member with Canadian Muslim Forum and a law graduate said, ' he was flabbergasted, "This is really just a no brainer". "The judge should have known better, this is not the first time somebody walks into the courtroom with a religious dress, Jews, men who wear the 'kippa' have been here for decades and they have certainly been involved into the courtroom setting".
