Conservative leaders call for burqa ban to fight terror
Interior ministers from Germany's main conservative parties want stricter rules for Muslims living in Germany in the wake of recent Islamist-linked attacks.
State interior ministers for the conservative Union parties (Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union and the Christian Social Union) are calling for greater restrictions on Muslims living in Germany, including a burqa ban, as politicians mull tougher anti-terror policies.
A draft proposal supported by the interior ministers and seen by Tagesspiegel posits, among other things, implementing a ban on the burqa - a garment worn by some Muslim women which covers the whole body - as well as restrictions on how mosques are financed.
