Women wearing a burqa will be fined £6,500 in Switzerland after local referendum to bring in the rule

Women who wear full face veils in public in a Swiss state could be fined up to £6,500 under new rules imposed by the local government.

Females muslims will be banned from wearing the burqa in shops, restaurants or public buildings in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino.

The local government in the southern Swiss state approved the ban after a referendum in September 2013 saw two in three voters backing the move.

    Won’t work. In France some women have been fined multiple times for doing so and the fines are paid buy wealthy Arabs.

    If they’re not Swiss citizens they should be deported. Fines do absolutely nothing. In fact, they do more harm than good because they allow these women to play the victim card.
