Belgium Common Sense Law to Go Ahead over oppresive Islamic Burka
Belgium became the first European country to move beyond speculation about banning the oppressive desert wear after parliamentarians voted to approve a draft law banning the burka in public places.
Belgian leftists last week attempted to scupper the plans by pulling out of the ruling coalition and forcing the government to collapse.
Despite opposition from the left, a new coalition consisting of five parties managed to win the vote with all but two MPs backing the ban.
Under this legislation the Islamic dress — dubbed ‘mobile prisons’ — cannot be worn in schools, shops, streets, public parks and sports centres.
Women caught wearing the burka in public will be fined £110 and reoffending will carry a week’s jail sentence.
Anti-Islamic colonisation groups fear that this new legislation could be overturned by EU ‘human rights’ laws.
However, the bill has been carefully constructed to avoid claims of discrimination by targeting all types of clothes or veils that do not allow the wearer to be fully identified.
The Belgian bill goes before the senate for approval and should become law by July.
