Switzerland Moves to Ban Muslim Women Wearing Burqas in Public


Well, finally there is some common sense prevailing. Now, understand, I’m all for people having the freedom to wear whatever they wish, but when they harbor the ideology of Islam, which is nothing more than a death cult, then everything else is suspect. Now, the Parliament of Switzerland has decided to ban Muslim women from wearing burkas in public.

The Sun reports, citing the German outlet 20 minuten:

Earlier this year a government committee had voted strongly against the ban, Swiss news service 20 minuten reported.

The ruling will have to undergo further scrutiny and votes before it could be made law.

Members voted in favour of a ruling that “no person shall cover his face in public places and in places or hide in the public domain or the provision of public services (excluding sacred sites).”

Blick am Abend reported that CVP National Councillor Elisabeth Schneider-Schneiter said: “The Burqa is an expression of misogynistic Islamist ideology. This symbol we need to halt.”

The Ticino region of Switzerland had already banned the burka and imposed a 7,000 ($9,828.84) pound fine for violation.

Previously, these same jihadists had imposed the burka on the women of Syria and Iraq, even beating them or killing them for not wearing the burka.

However, Switzerland is not the only country to do this. France also passed a burka ban in 2010.
