I believe in freedom of Religious beliefs. While out and about in public I feel that Muslim women must show their face not just the eyes. Thank God this little girl was found but if the woman's face was made visible for everyone to see not hidden behind a Niqab. The school would have known it wasn't her mother who picked her up and signed the book in scribble.

Thank you Heavenly Father for answering prayers. Too many children are becoming the victims of the most horrible violence. We must become more active in the protection of our children. This time a bullet was dodged; however the child abductor is still at large. Now Father my prayers are that you endow the proper authorities with knowledge and power to apprehend this criminal who thought nothing of leaving this child in the cold in just a tee shirt. Father your will be done. Amen

is it possible it was a man dressed in a Niqab? What a great way for men to abduct children or commit other crimes. Their identity can be seriosly concealed by securitycameras and witnesses.

you're right, you don't know who is hiding behind a Niqab. The person could have been a man not a woman

Thank you Lord! But this doesn't pass the smell test with me... please investigate to the fullest!!

PHILADELPHIA — A 5-year-old girl who was taken from a school classroom by a woman claiming to be her mother was found safe Tuesday morning just outside the city and police were searching for her abductor. Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said a man walking down the street around 4:40 a.m. heard cries for help and found Nailla Robinson hiding under a jungle gym in a park, wearing only a T-shirt. She's been taken to the hospital to be checked out, Chitwood said, but is expected to be OK. The investigation was continuing, Chitwood said, and police are looking for the suspect.

It's one thing to believe in religion but to hide your face cause you don't want to see you is another
Deborah Degnan January 15, 2013 at 04:43 PM
Is it possible that the person used the religious garb as a costume, pretending to be Muslim and, in the process, covering him/her self to evade authorities? If so, that's a clever ruse that may be a sticky point in future situations.

Good rule for all schools. Face must first be exposed before doors are open - and a good reason for the door to be opened.

Good thing that the girl is safe. Child abduction is instantly increasing, and it's alarming for parents because we don't know when this going to happen? That's why I provided my children a cell-phone based application for safety and protection. The service is awesome and very reliable during emergency situations. When subscribers are in need of help, just by pressing the panic button subscriber can ask immediate help from family members, friends and trusted persons and to the nearest 911 in where the subscriber is located.

So, you believe in religious freedom, unless it's inconvenient for you.
