Austria Bans Full-Face Veils
A full-face ban makes Burqa’s and Niqab’s criminalized
Austria has banned full-face coverings. The Burqa Ban took effect on Sunday making it illegal to wear any garment that covers the face. From the hairline to the chin. Government officials have called on this ban to protect Austrian values and create a more united society. The Ban targets a minority group of full veiled Muslim women. Outrage from activists, experts and citizens has created protests throughout Austria. This comes before Austria’s general election on October 15. Austria is not the only country in Europe to have a burqa ban. A ban that personally attacks Muslim Women’s rights.
