If the Austrian state is going to be consistent, then ban all symbols of supremacist totalitarianism.
2,000-strong protest in Vienna against veil ban
The Muslim groups who organised the rally said that over 3,000 people attended, and that the march was not just about the veil and the headscarf but more generally about human rights and rights for minority groups.
Muslim women at the demonstration held up signs saying “No to the headscarf ban” or “I love my hijab”.
The Austrian cabinet unveiled tough new immigration, integration and security policies last week that include a ban on wearing full-face veils in public, as well as a de-facto ban on headscarves for justice and police officials.
The government programme also includes beefing up surveillance and security measures, obliging migrants granted the right to stay to sign an “integration contract” and a “statement of values”.
