Under a new law imposed today in Austria, it is now illegal to cover your face in public essentially banning the burka worn by Muslims.
The new law states that a persons face should be visible from hairline to chin. Austria’s police will be able to use force to uncover someone’s face if it is covered and can also fine people €150.
The new law is a response to the growing Muslims population in the country failing (unwilling to) integrate with the the rest of Austria. The Dutch government is currently looking at imposing similar laws and both France and Belgium have already adopted a burka ban back in 2011.
Why do muslims wear the burka?
Many view the burka as a weapon used to control women and Islam has always been criticised for its treatment of women. This treatment is at the heart of the false and hate filled religion of Islam.
According to a Muslim ran website the so called “prophet” Mohamed said in the Koran “ I was shown Hell and I have never seen anything more terrifying than it. And I saw that the majority of its people are women.” adding “They are ungrateful to their companions (husbands) and ungrateful for good treatment. If you are kind to one of them for a lifetime then she sees one (undesirable) thing in you, she will say, ‘I have never had anything good from you.”
Despite mo’s general hate towards women (who are created in God’s image so mo is just a blasphemer) it did not stop mo marrying multiple women including his favourite wife a 9 year old girl!
Religion is not a point scoring system, god will not judge you if you follow a bunch of rules such as wearing a burka or not. If you want to go to heaven put your faith in Jesus as the son of god and how Jesus died to show the world how much god loves you. If god wanted women to wear burkas all the time then god would have simply made women born with them attached to them… burkas are simply putting a blanket over gods creation.
Why the ban?
The ban reflects concerns by Austrians that their country is under threat from Islam. It has been reported that 13.5% of all new born babies being born in the country in 2014 were Muslim. In Austria a majority catholic country many have welcomed the new law seeing the burka as an affront to Austrian culture and values with many fearing that if thing do not change sharia law may take hold and non Muslims may be forced to conform and wear burkas.
Austria’s next election is set to take place on October 15 Current polls have shown that the two main political parties the People’s Party and the Freedom Party who are opposed to immigration are ahead with 34 per cent and 25 per cent whilst the centrist Social Democrats, who are the majority party in the current coalition government, have only 27 per cent.
The new ban will also stop people from wearing surgical masks, ski masks, clown make-up, as well as the balaclavas in public which could be used to commit robberies.
