In the midst of anti-immigration surge in Europe and America, the Bavarian government in southern Germany will ban wearing of burqa in schools, universities, government workplaces and polling stations.
So, here again people's innate freedom and right to wear in a conservative way will be curtailed by a law. What is western idea of liberty and freedom coming to these days! Simply disgusting!
The move comes seven months before a federal election where immigration will be a prominent issue and the Bavarian conservatives that govern the region, the sister party to Chancellor Angela Merkel's, are worried about losing votes to the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD).
France and Belgium have banned the burqa and the region of Lombardy in northern Italy has banned it in hospitals and public offices belonging to the regional government.
