Justice Minister: burkas are awful but legislation's not the answer
It has been under discussion for some time, and today parliament is debating a proposal by Dansk Folkeparti (DF) to ban the wearing of burkas and similar garments in Denmark.
Mette Frederiksen, the justice minister, told BT today she believes burkas are of a bygone era and have no place in Denmark, but she doesn't believe that they should be legislated against.
"My fundamental position with burkas and other garments that cover the face and hands is that they are completely awful," she told the paper.
