Denmark Becomes Fifth European Country to Ban the Burqa

Just because radical Muslim men are insecure about anyone seeing the skin of Muslim women doesn’t mean westernized European nations have to permit their head-to-to clothing preferences.

The country of Denmark just became the fifth European country to ban full-face veils, including the burqa and niqab. Danish lawmakers overwhelmingly voted in favor of the ban 75 to 30.

According to the Daily Mail:

Technically the law bans any full-face garment where there is no 'recognisable purpose' for wearing it, such as cold weather or complying with laws such as wearing helmets on motorcycles.

Politicians insist the law does not target any religion, but it has become known colloquially as the 'burqa ban’.

Headscarves, turbans and Jewish skull caps will not be affected by the law.

Of course it’s conversationally known as the “burqa ban.” Besides maybe medical face masks, who else but Muslim women hide their faces from society?

People guilty of the new offense will face a fine equivalent to $122. Any subsequent offenses could carry the equivalent to a $1,222 fine or up to six months in jail.

I guess the hiding — and persecution of women — is over, at least in Denmark.
