CSU for National Burqa Ban

By  Monday, 30.11.2015, 21:30    General News

As in many European countries the burqa and niqab discussion in Germany gets heated up once in a while. As we reported, Deputy Minister-President of Bavaria and Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology Ilse Aigner has visited Iran recently. She used her experience from the Islamic Republic to underline that a law making it illegal to wear a burqa in Germany would not be unusual and that it should be passed soon. She told German newspaper Die Welt:

“When I went to Iran I followed the instructions of the country and wore a headscarf. Likewise I expect women from the Arab world that they don’t cover their faces when they come here. Such laws don’t just apply to people with German passports.”

Bavaria has banned teachers from wearing burqas in schools in 2014, but in 2012 a report by the government came to the conclusion that a general ban on wearing burqas in public would be unconstitutional.
