After Belgium and France, Switzerland has Also Imposed a Ban on Burqa

Bern: After Belgium and France, Switzerland has also imposed a ban on the face veil

According to news agencies, the Swiss Parliament has passed a bill proposing a ban on the burqa by a majority. It should be noted that a referendum was held 2 years ago to ban the burqa, in which 51% of the participants voted in favor of the ban, and now the parliament has formally approved the bill.

Based on the referendum results, the upper house already approved the bill and today the bill to ban the burqa was introduced in the lower house of the Swiss parliament. 151 members supported while only 29 opposed the bill. After the bill’s approval banning the burqa, fines can now be imposed for violating this law, which can be up to 1,000 francs, i.e. 1,116 dollars.

After the approval of the burqa ban bill, it will now be a crime to cover the nose, mouth, and eyes in public places and private buildings, however, some exceptions will also be allowed in certain cases. Switzerland is the third country in Europe to impose a ban on the burqa after Belgium and France have already done so.
