Please don't make jokes on such a sad story.

It isn't sad; it's tragic.

Tragic that such crap like religious dress code sees someone escape normal safety rules.

Who do you blame for the death? God? Allah? Her for listening to what people say these figures said?

There's a difference between "Clothes maketh the man" (look for the second part of that quote) and trying for a Darwin Award when you've already got kids.

It has nothing to do with religious clothing. Ever heard of Isadora Duncan?

I had never heard of Isadora Duncan, but I have now; thanks for having a perfect example to illustrate why this story is written in a really stupid way. Why is the headline: "Australian woman killed by her hijab"?? It's like headlining a story about a girl being raped with the title: "Girl in short skirt is raped". You're making her choice of clothing into the focal point of the story, which really it's not, it's the lack of properly implemented safety policies on the go-carts. The implication is that it's her own fault for wearing a hijab. (talk)22:38, 14 April 2010

Difference: Isadora Duncan wanted to wear her scarves. Dadoun was religiously required to wear her "scarf". For one, it's a matter of choice. For the other, it's a matter of God saving her from the eternal fires of hell. Go religion!
