    I love how we all agree that this is a reasonable, evenhanded law.

    I think most people would agree that there should be reasonable suspicion before a police officer can ask you to lift your veil or show ID.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    he said "your" veil. So I think instead he thinks you wear a veil.
    I may be wrong.

    I'm surprised there isn't already a law covering this

    There may already be for all I know. If what was in the OPs article is true, it affects only a very, very small number of people in Australia (less than 2000 out of 23mil, or <0.008%), and as such is prob'ly an unnecessary law already. I wouldn't be surprised is there were already some statute or law that could be used for this purpose.
    I may be wrong.

    Seems to me that there are plenty of very obvious reasons for this to occur...starting with...

    "The laws were motivated by the bungled prosecution of Carnita Matthews, a 47-year-old Muslim mother of seven who was booked by a highway patrolman for a minor traffic violation in Sydney in June last year.

    An official complaint was made in Matthews' name against Senior Constable Paul Fogarty, the policeman who gave her the ticket. The complaint accused Fogarty of racism and of attempting to tear off her veil during their roadside encounter.
    Unknown to Matthews, the encounter was recorded by a camera inside Fogarty's squad car. The video footage showed her aggressively berating a restrained Fogarty and did not support her claim that he tried to grab her veil before she reluctantly and angrily lifted it to show her face.
    Matthews was sentenced in November to six months in jail for making a deliberately false statement to police.
    But that conviction and sentence were quashed on appeal last month without her serving any time in jail because a judge was not convinced that it was Matthews who signed the false statutory declaration. The woman who signed the document had worn a burqa and a justice of the peace who witnessed the signing had not looked beneath the veil to confirm her identity"
