Austria-Thousands of angry Muslim women and supporters came out to protest the government’s plan to ban full face veils including Burkas and Niqabs.
Thousands of Muslim women have marched in Vienna against controversial government plans to ban full-face veils in public.
An estimated 3,000 took part in the rally calling for the law change to be abandoned, accusing the government of Islamophobia.
Placards declared that wearing a veil is a personal choice, and protesters claimed that the measure is both sexist and anti-Muslim.
Last week Austria’s ruling coalition said the niqab and burka ban will come into effect over the next 18 months.
It has widely been seen as an effort to counter the far-right Freedom Party (FPO) ahead of parliamentary elections next year.
At the protest, which passed peacefully, women marched under the slogan ‘My body – My right of self-determination!’
Every Western nation should completely ban full face veils. We have no idea who is underneath these Burkas and Niqabs. Terrorists and criminals are known for hiding under Burkas making it easier for them to evade law enforcement. Western nations are supposed to be beacons of freedom therefore must reject Sharia law completely.
Saudi Arabia would never allow women to march in protest against Burkas and Niqabs, yet Muslims expect Western nations to capitulate and bow to their laws. Muslims never assimilate to their host countries. If we don’t push back on their demands, we will soon be the minority with militant Muslims at the helm enslaving us all under Sharia law.
