• Italy's Lombardy bans burqa and niqab in public offices

    Headscarf or any other form of Moslem woman attire is not a requirement of Islam. No where in their book Quran such attire is required or described. It was created by Arab Islamist Wahabist terrorist organization and imposed on all Moslem peoples by it
    so they could be "better Moslems."

    If you do not know about Wahabism, look it up. It is a common knowledge.

    The impression "Moslem" woman attire creates on men is this: I am a potential rapist so she has to protect herself.

    That is a real BS.



    Italy's Lombardy bans burqa and niqab in public offices

    DAILY SABAH, ISTANBUL, 12/12/2015

    Northeastern region of Italy has amended legislation on Saturday in order to ban wearing burqa and niqab in hospitals and local government buildings.

    The new regulation in Lombardy, which will come into force on January 1, marks the first time an Italian region has explicitly outlawed Islamic face coverings.

    Current law in the country already forbids clothing that makes identification difficult in public places.

    Simona Bordonali, head of security, civil protection and immigration in Lombardy, said "serious terror attacks" in recent weeks had forced the region to reinforce its security measures.

    "Whoever wants to enter a hospital in Lombardy must be recognizable and present themselves uncovered," he said. "The burqa [and the] niqab are therefore banned." Bordonali said.

    However, Italian Justice Minister Andrea Orlando criticized the legislation, saying it appeared to be "symbolic propaganda" given Italy already has a necessary legislation on identification people.

    "Right now the last thing we need is to wave symbols about and make propaganda - a domain in which the Islamist extremists are unbeatable," Orlando said.

    "The right response is to guarantee public safety and make sure the laws of the land are respected," he added.
