Denmark can ban clothing that hides the face

Brussels. 6 Oct. INTERFAX – IN Denmark can impose a ban on the wearing of clothing that conceals the face, including the traditional Muslim women’s clothing such as the niqab or burka, informs on Friday Agency associated press.

It is noted that most members of the Danish Parliament, including representatives of the opposition, intend to support a ban of the garment.

The representative of the Liberal party of Denmark (Venstre) Alleman Jacob-Jensen said Friday after a meeting in Parliament that the bill is not directed against any religion and will not limit the wearing of scarves, kerchiefs, turbans, or bales.

The exact date of the vote on the bill has not yet been appointed.

The Agency recalls that similar laws have already been adopted in several European countries, in particular in France, Belgium and Austria.
