Belgian Member of Parliament Proposes Burqa Ban

Christine Defraigne has announced a proposal to ban the burqa in Belgium almost five years after a similar text was brought by the MR to parliament. The proposal suggests that wearing a burqa in public in a way that masks or hides the identity of the person under the veil should be prohibited. Violations of this law would result in a penalty charge of EUR 15 to 25 and/or imprisonment of between one and seven days.

Defraigne said that women were under no religious obligation to wear the burqa. “The Qur’an does not mention it. Banning women from wearing these items is not refusing Islam as a religion. The burkha and the niqab personify the subjugation of the individual and social dehumanisation.”
