Danish government urges full use of existing rules limiting face veil and burqa

Denmark’s government says face-covering Muslim veils don’t belong in Danish society but no ban is needed because their use can be limited with existing rules. The center-right government says the burqa – an all-covering dress – and the niqab face veil are “diametrically opposed” to the values on which Danish society is built. It calls for the full use of existing rules that allow schools and both public and private employers to demand that students, teachers and workers show their faces.
