Dutch Bans the Burka

Dutch unveil the toughest face in Europe with a ban on the burka
The 'time of cosy tea-drinking' with Muslims is over, says the minister who would ban the burka. She recently cancelled a meeting with Muslim leaders who refused to shake her hand because she was a woman. But she also admits it may be difficult to implement the suggested legislation. The solution is to prohibit the garments “in specific situations” on grounds of public safety. The ban is likely to be enforced in shops, public buildings, cinemas, train and bus stations and airports, as well as on trains and buses.
