Austria approves headscarf ban in primary schools

Austrian lawmakers have approved plans to ban girls in elementary schools from wearing headscarves. Lawmakers from the governing coalition of Chancellor Sebastian Kurz’s conservative People’s Party and the anti-migration Freedom Party supported the measure Wednesday. The measure bans wearing ’ideologically or religiously characterized clothing’ that covers the head.

Good for Austria. If you're not willing to integrate to the culture, leave.

The hijab is a symbol of modesty and sexual maturity in islamic culture. Young girls should not be wearing it in school. It would be the equivalent of a young girl wearing makeup and high heels to school.

I'm sorry how many attacks have there been in Austria or anywhere that were from a 12 year old girl with a headscarf trying to learn geometry? what will just solve other than the increase distrust between Muslims and the general Western world?

They should probably start banning muzzles in schools all together. Would be a more adequate policy.

"religiously characterised clothing for the head". Are the Austrians going after the Jews again?

Remember when you could go back packing across Europe. I remember in the late 90s early 00s where it was the thing to do for college kids. Now you’d never let your college kid do that. Such a shame how destructive Islam is to all cultures it comes in contact with. It’s like a disease.

As a country that preaches religious freedom, but under their rules and regulations. Laughable 😂😂🤦🏼‍♂️

Just like guns, banning the object doesn't get to the root cause of the problem. Headscarves should be voluntary. Enforcing rules so someone CANT do something or that they MUST do something are not solutions. Every individual should be free to make a choice and we can enforce the rules based on the results of that choice.
