They’re a security risk, full stop.
That said….far too little too late. We’re way past mere banning of head veils, there’s an all out assault on our civil societies that boneheaded politicians allowed to happen.
Public sector workers ‘must be BANNED from wearing Islamic veils at work’ claims minister
PUBLIC sector workers – including school teachers – will be forbidden from wearing Islamic headscarves while working if new legislation proposed by Austria’s minister for foreign affairs and integration is passed.
Sebastian Kurz has drafted the new regulations together with Muslim colleague Muna Duzdar to help create a more “secular state”.
Mr Kurz’s spokesman said the legislation was being drafted “because there (at schools), it’s about the effect of role models and the influence on young people”.
Mr Kurz, from the Christian Conservative People’s Party (OVP), added that Austria “is religion-friendly, but also a secular state” – yet claimed it was acceptable to have Christian crosses in classrooms across the country.
He said: “Crosses in the classrooms wouldn’t be questioned. Crosses in the classrooms are part of historically grown culture in Austria.”
Kurz has previously made calls for a nationwide ban on full body veils and urged authorities to implement restrictions on Koran distributions by Salafist Muslims in the central European nation – a move which would go further than the French headscarf ban.
