Burqa ban debate sweeping Europe after ECHR ruling
After the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled in favor France's prohibition of face veils on Tuesday, a number of European countries are preparing the launch debates on introducing a similar ban.
Norway, Denmark and Austria have already braced themselves for new burqa ban debate, after the Strasbourg court ruled that the French law which was introduced in 2010 was legal.
Norway's Progress Party member Mazyar Keshvari told the VG daily, "We must consider whether we should promote the proposal again, after the court in Strasbourg has now confirmed what we have constantly said: that a ban is compatible with human rights."
