Court bans Muslim pupil from wearing face veil
A court in Bavaria has banned a school pupil from wearing a face veil during lessons, rejecting her argument that she had a constitutional right to do so.
The 18-year-old Muslim pupil had been shut out of lessons at a state run vocational college near Regensburg for refusing to remove her niqab, a garment which covers the hair and face leaving only the eyes visible.
She took the matter to court, arguing that the ban was a contravention of her constitutional right to religious expression.
