Top Europe court upholds full-face veil ban in Belgium


The European Court of Human Rights supported Belgium's ban on full-fledged Nicoby veils by calling restrictions on "necessary in a democratic society" on Tuesday. This veil is a controversial issue across Europe, and in some countries publicly banned clothing in the name of safety and rights groups, which are considered to violate citizenship.

The court ruled that the ban would guarantee social cohesion, "protection of the rights and freedoms of others" and that it is necessary in a democratic society.

Belgium banned the wearing of the front veil in June 2011. "It is forbidden to reveal" the face hidden or partially hidden in whole or in part with an unidentified face ". Penalties will be imposed for violations and you will be sentenced to up to 7 days in prison.

The Belgian case was raised by two Muslim women, Belgian nation Samia Belcacemi and Moroccan Yamina Oussar. Both women chose the free will to wear a niqab and claimed that their rights were violated and that the law was discriminatory. After Belgian announcement of the ban, Belkasemi continued to wear veil for a while but was fined for social pressure and fear. Oussar told the court that the court decided in his statement to stay at home.

Niqab policies in other countries
United Kingdom: There is no law for religious reasons. However, in March 2007, the Ministry of Education issued guidelines for public facilities and denominational directors to ban Nikkvale.

France: It is the first country in Europe to ban the front veil in public places under the law that came into effect in 2011. The European Court rejected the claim that religious liberty was violated by illegalizing the full veil, and backed the ban on France in 2014. Since the law came into force, about 1,600 people have been arrested. A violation may result in a fine of € 150 ($ 170).

Germany: German parliamentarians have approved a partial ban on "covering the face". According to the bill, officials and officials, including judges and soldiers, must reveal their faces and people may have to remove face coatings to match identification documents.

Italy: The law of 1975 to protect the public order systematically gave up the regional movement to use the ban to ban the whole veil, although it is illegal to cover the face in public places. Two immigrants in the northern leagues, Lombardy and Venice have banned the front veil from the burqa in hospitals and public places.

Spain: The Spanish Supreme Court banned the front veil of a public building, determined three years ago, in the northeastern province of Catalonia in 2013.
