Italian region could BAN women from wearing Islamic niqab in hospitals and public offices
OFFICIALS in the northwestern region of Liguria have announced plans to ban women from wearing the Islamic niqab in hospitals and public offices.
Liguria will become the latest region to ban traditional Islamic attire if the plans go ahead, following other European nations that have already adopted burqa bans.
Described as an attempt to defend women’s freedom, it is not yet known when the ban will be implemented if it is given the green light by officials.
Giovanni Toti, president of the Liguria region, said the burqa represented “the worst symbol of the oppression of women”.
He added: “Those who live in Italy need to grasp and respect at least the minimum rules of equality between men and women.”
