Religious Headscarves Unwanted In Denmark

DR Nyheder (Denmark), Oct. 31

According to a survey, carried out for the free daily Metroexpress nearly one in two Danes believe that religious headscarves, as often wore by Muslim women, should be banned in Denmark.

The Danish People’s Party have decided after seeing the surveys results, to once again propose a new parliamentary law banning the wearing of headscarves in schools.

Four years ago, they attempted to impose a similar ban but were not supported in parliament by any other party.

The Social Liberals have already announced they would not support any ban on religious headscarves.

Likewise, the Lord Major of Århus Louise Gade said that any ban in Århus would only be introduced against her strong opposition. “There are far more important things to take issue with than what clothes people wear,” she said.
