No jackass, you don’t get to dictate the culture and identity of the country, which is overwhelmingly Christian.
Muslim MP calls for government to BAN Christian symbols after burka outlawed in Austria
A MUSLIM MP is urging the Austrian government to consider bans on Christian symbols in classrooms, after the coalition banned Muslim face veils in public areas.
Austria’s coalition government announced the ban on the burka and niqab in public spaces such as courts and schools on Monday in a bid to counter the rise of the far-right Freedom Party, whose candidate nearly won last month’s presidential vote.
The ruling Social Democratic party (SPÖ) and the centre-right Austrian People’s party (ÖVP) is also considering a more general ban on civil servants wearing religious symbols.
The agreement said: “We believe in an open society that is also based on open communication. Full-body veils in public spaces stand against that and will therefore be prohibited.”
