Kitchener women say they were stopped by police for cycling topless

Three Kitchener, Ont., sisters are planning to file a formal complaint after they say they were stopped by a police officer for cycling topless.

Tameera, Nadia and Alysha Mohamed took off their shirts while riding their bikes in downtown Kitchener on Friday evening because of the heat. They say they received mostly positive reaction, until a police officer stopped them on Shanley Street. ( I bet they got lots of positive reaction!)

“He said, ‘Ladies, you need to put on some shirts,'” said Tameera Mohamed. “We said, ‘No we don’t … it’s our legal right in Ontario to be topless as women.'”

The officer said there had been complaints, according to Mohamed. She said the officer began backtracking once her sister, Alysha, began recording with her smartphone. The officer then denied having pulled them over for riding topless, before letting them continue their ride, Mohamed said.

“We went on our way and went straight to the police station to report it,” she said.

Waterloo regional police acknowledge there was an incident involving three topless female cyclists and a police officer, but would not discuss the incident in detail.

“We’re doing an internal review on the situation,” said Staff Sgt. Michael Haffner. “It is a current law that if a female chooses to go topless, that is their right.”

The sisters say they plan to file a formal complaint with the Office of the Independent Police Review Director, which oversees public complaints against municipal and regional police services in Ontario as well as the Ontario Provincial Police.

“When men take off their tops in public, it’s clearly because it’s a hot day and clearly it’s for their comfort. Women should be given the same freedom,” said Nadia Mohamed. “Even though legally we have that right, socially we clearly don’t.”

The women are holding a rally in uptown Waterloo on Saturday to support the desexualizing of women’s bodies. Shirts will be optional.

In July 1991, University of Guelph student Gwen Jacob was charged after removing her top on a hot summer day. That act started a movement, eventually giving all women in Ontario the legal right to expose their breasts.

Now who would have thought that three muslim sisters would be riding around on their bicycles topless! I thought they had to cover up from head to toe…or so we have been led to believe. I guess there were no other muslim women or men about to attack them for being so undressed?

They fight for their right to keep their faces veiled ( under sharia law) during a Citizenship Ceremony and now they are fighting for their right to bare their breasts according to a Western law in the Province of Ontario?

They complain cuz we want to see their faces and get upset when we ask them to cover up their boobs…they complain that gyms and public swimming pools don’t have female muslim swims so no man can see them in swimsuits…but they bare themselves willingly to get male attention? What is wrong with this picture?

Sorry ladies, but you can’t have it both ways! Shaking my head and asking WTF?

    Topless muslim girls? Who knew? I’ll bet that has muzzies spitting out their hummus the world over.

    You’re quite right. The muzzies can’t have it both ways.

    • Blessed B. says:

      LOL! I almost fell off my chair…. spitting out hummus! Too funny!

      I still can’t believe that these girls did that. Haven’t they heard of tank tops? Why go bike riding when it’s hot and humid and you know you are going to be dripping buckets of sweat. Good Ghandi….

      The only reason I can see for doing this is to test the laws already in place. It’s a stupid law IMHO but that’s Ontario for you! Don’t understand why any woman would want the right to remove her shirt in public..but, hey, what ever floats their boat I guess!

      The least they could have done is to come prepared wearing pasties…with tassles!

      • Hardnox says:

        I miss the ’70’s when tank tops and short shorts was the style. 🙂

        • Blessed B. says:

          You’re in luck! They are making a comeback…the young girls call them Daisy Dukes now.

          Just make sure you are wearing your aviator sunglasses!

        OM Lord! I love this article!!!!!
        You got it right….they can wear pasties with tassles! LOL

    • Blessed B. says:

      Check out the video’s below and why they did this!

    It’s just their faces gotta be covered, maybe?

    • Blessed B. says:

      LOL! haven’t heard of that but maybe…? I do wonder though if these young women will be endangering themselves by doing this and having it go so public with their names.

      That would be a steep price to pay just for the sake of exercising your right to bare breasts in public.

    You’re right, BB, you couldn’t make this stuff up. Next thing you know, they’ll be demanding to eat bacon because it’s their right in Canada.

    I’m just trying to imagine them riding bikes while wrapped in those bedsheets they wear, lol, then to leave their boobs on display must have been a sight that cop wishes he could unsee !!

    • Blessed B. says:

      I bet they do lots of things that westerners do but then whine when they don’t get to do want they want according to their sharia law.

      I don’t think they were wearing those bedsheets…..but that would be even more hilarious if they had been!

      I feel sorry for the policeman actually…. he’s going to be dragged through the mud for this. No one will see that he could have actually been saving their lives by asking them to cover up. The girls could have been at risk to be attacked by muzzies that are more orthodox in their ideology of islam.

    Now we know why they did it! Read this: http://www.therecord.com/news-story/5753649-sisters-say-police-told-them-to-cover-up-during-topless-bike-ride/

    QUOTE~ Mohamed said being topless in certain settings isn’t a new thing for her and her siblings, whether on the beach or tubing down a river.

    She and two of her three sisters, Nadia Mohamed and Juno-nominated singer Alysha Brilla, had seen lots of shirtless men on Friday night as they rode around after 9 p.m. The trio decided they’d be more comfortable that way, too.

    “If we were trying to make a statement, we would have been cycling topless in the day,” Tameera said.

    They were initially encouraged by the positive reception they received, even interacting with a female police officer who didn’t say a word about their toplessness.

    But the sisters, who are all in their 20s, said a male officer stopped them on Shanley Street, and said they had to put on their shirts.

    The women told him it was their legal right to go topless in public; they say the officer said there had been complaints from parents.

    Videos of Alysha Brilla… I dare you to last 30 seconds.
