Austrian police order Muslim lawbreakers to uncover their faces as country’s ‘burka ban’ comes into force

A Muslim woman was forced to remove her veil today as the ban on full-face veils came into force in Austria.

Items concealing the face in public places, such as the full Islamic veil, medical masks and scarves to cover faces have been outlawed.

Only under certain conditions, such as ‘at cultural events’, will people be able to wear them in public.

    I think “best practice” would be returning them to their Islamic homes and keeping Europe, European.

      We could give them their own planet.

      I agree wholeheartedly.

    In the West, only criminals wear masks.

    They should make them wear the Star of David, too.

    I am afraid this is like spraying perfume on a corpse. Too late.
