Hijab Bill in Italy Senate

Italian Muslims commended an endeavor by senior Senator Silvana Amati, concerning a law regulating the wearing of hijab in Italy, as Italian Muslims hold out hope that the right-wing opposition would not block the motion. Amati unveiled an initiative to draft a law regulating the wearing of the hijab in public places, and the law, if passed, will give legal protection to hijab against opposition by politicians, especially the right-wingers. The Italian senator said that the motion would stipulate that faces must not be covered.
