The Netherlands to pass burka ban
Following popular calls by Greet Wilder and the Dutch National Party, the Netherlands yesterday proposed legislation to ban the burka in Holland. The country will also take a harder line against immigration.
The Dutch government was the latest European country to propose legislation yesterday to implement a burka ban. The move by the Netherlands follows bans introduced this year in France and Belgium, and draft legislation waiting to be approved by the Italian parliament. The ban will apply to Muslim face veils, burkas and niqabs.
