GERMAN COURT OKAYS BAN ON FULL FACE COVERINGS IN SCHOOLS
In a bizarre plot twist leaving some observers foolishly hopeful, A German court has okayed a school’s banning of young Muslim girls from covering their faces with veils while in class.
A German court ruled Monday in favor of a school that is seeking to prohibit students from wearing a niqab, a full-body veil that covers a woman’s face except her eyes, Deutsche Welle reports.
The school, Sophie Scholl, a small school in Osnabrück, northern Germany:
“didn’t want the student to wear her niqab for two reasons. One was that they couldn’t identify her—someone else could take a test for her, for example. … The other reason was that school officials believe that the open communication needed in education would not be possible if only the student’s eyes are visible.
Open communication “is not just based on the spoken word but also on non-verbal elements and body language,” a statement from Lower Saxony’s school authority reads. “To facilitate that kind of communication, it is essential that the students’ faces are visible.”
Sophie Scholl, after whom the school is named, was an anti-Nazi activist who was executed alongside her brothers for handing out anti-war pamphlets in Germany. She would likely be pleased by her namesake leading the charge to restore rationality to the European continent that is being plagued by hordes of economic migrants preying off the welfare system.
It also might indicate that German lawmakers will sign-off on a nation-wide ban.
Will Germany become the latest country to ban the burqa? At a news conference to discuss new security measures on Thursday, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière seemed to suggest that a partial ban on the full-face veils worn by some Muslim women was in the works.
“It doesn’t fit in with our open society. To show one’s face is crucial for communicating, for living together in our society and keeping it together,” de Maizière told reporters. “In the areas where it serves a function to show one’s face, we want to make it a rule . . . and this means whoever breaks it must feel the consequences.”
