Court orders Islamic veil ban softened
The Constitutional Court has ordered the state of North Rhine-Westphalia to review a ban on Islamic veils in its schools. The judges decided that veils do not pose a concrete threat to a school's learning environment.
The judges in Karlsruhe argued that a blanket ban on teachers wearing veils in school is not compatible with religious freedom, left-wing daily TAZ reports.
The newspaper saw a copy of the ruling on Thursday, although it is not due to be made public until later on Friday.
