Anti-minaret group mulls burqa ban initiative
by Lyssandra Sears
The group responsible for launching Switzerland's anti-minaret initiative has called the rejection of a motion to ban burqas on public transport and in dealings with authorities "an affront".
The National Council on Monday rejected a motion by Swiss People's Party member Oskar Freysinger to ban the wearing of burqa in certain situations.
The Council decided with a significant majority that imposing such a ban was unnecessary.
