Denmark joins other EU nations in banning face veils from being worn in public.
The country's parliament has passed a law that bans wearing face-covering garments in public.
This would mostly affect Muslim women who wear Islamic veils.
The new law prohibits Muslim women from wearing an Islamic veil in public. Women who want to wear the veil are required to stay at home or leave the country.
Danish government ministers who introduced the new law said the Islamic veil symbolizes oppression of women and it is incompatible with the values of the Danish society.
The list of European countries adopting Burqa and Niqab bans has gained a new member.
Countries that already had such a ban include
– France
– Belgium
– Netherlands
– Bulgaria
– Austria
– Denmark.
– Switzerland
Face-covering veils includes traditional headdresses like the burqa or nikab and other items concealing the face.
In countries that banned the full face veils it won't be allowed in schools, hospitals, inside admin buildings, on public transport and other public places or buildings.
The ban doesn’t prevent your head from being covered, just your face and identity.
Violators of tes ban could be fined up to 177 US dollars in Austria and up to €405 fine in the Netherlands.
In Muslim countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan The Islamic veil symbolizes oppression of women under Sharia laws.
There is no mention of an Islamic veil or burqa in the Koran. There are moderate Muslims who call to ban the burqa in the West.
