Catalonian police controls women with burqas

27 August 2013

Catalonian police has now to control all women wearing burqas. “The Catalan police is convinced that the existence of a woman covered with a niqab or a burka can be indicative, along with other elements, of an environment of radicalization or of a Salafi vision of Islam”, say the government sources. The Parliament approved on July 18, a motion under public safety arguments, that forbiddens face covering in public spaces.
