Swiss parliament approves ban on full-face coverings like burqas, and sets fine for violators

  • Switzerland's lower house of parliament has voted to pass a ban on face coverings, including burqas worn by some Muslim women, following a referendum in which voters approved forbidding niqabs, burqas, ski masks, and bandannas.
  • The ban on face coverings is part of a broader effort to restrict clothing worn by protestors as well as religious garb. The ban has sparked controversy and debate over religious freedom and women's rights in Switzerland.
  • The legislative passage of the ban marks a significant step in Switzerland's efforts to regulate clothing and address security concerns, although critics argue that it discriminates against Muslim women and violates their rights to freedom of religion and expression.
