Austria bans headscarf for Muslim women

The Austrian MPs just passed a law which prohibits Muslim women from wearing headscarves in primary schools. This decision will not affect the Sikhs and the Kippas.

The move was proposed by the ruling government. This was done supposedly in order to prevent accusations of discrimination against Muslims.

Rudolf Schneider, an MP stated that this was a step taken in order to free girls from hardship. FPOE Education Spokesman Vendillin Moeller said that the law was enacted in order to combat political Islam.

Around two years back, Austria had placed a ban on burqas. The public is still divided on this matter for so long. Many still believe that wearing a veil means the person has “something to hide”. There have been numerous conflicts between Muslim women and the police after the law was passed. Let’s watch out for the response this one begets.
