Q&A Uncovered

This week's token Muslim on Q&A was Najeeba Wazefadost.

Whilst she wore an Islamic headscarf during the program, she appeared without it in the promotional photograph at the beginning. Perhaps it was on loan from the ABC's wardrobe department?

The description of most of the panelists on Q&A could politely be described as fawning. What a lefty love-in.
