German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that face veil (Niqab) of Muslims is not compatible with German culture and it will be banned wherever possible. She said that in our culture we say ‘Show your face’, so we cannot accept full veil.
The plan to ban face veil in courts, police checks, universities and during driving is being considered and it is being reported that soon it will be applicable.
[junkie-alert style=”green”] Germany will not be the first European country to ban face veil France, Belgium, Bulgaria. Netherland and Switzerland have already banned veil fining and arresting on failing to showing your face. Dutch parliament also approved a bill but the ban has not been implemented yet while Italy banned veil in hospitals and government offices. [/junkie-alert]
Angela Merkel also spoke against influx of refugees and said that it cannot be repeated. Last year Germany received 1.1 million refugees, which was the largest refugees’ entry after World War II. But German chancellor said that ‘not all that found refugee can stay in Germany.’

It is being said that after the hard-line anti-Muslim party AfD gained success in some elections the ruling party was forced to take these measures to win public support, which shows that the islamophobic environment in whole Europe is at its peak.
