Constitutional Court follows N-VA’s vision regarding ban on burkas
The Constitutional Court confirms that the law banning the wearing of burkas is sufficiently accessible and precise and that banning this type of headwear can be necessary in a democratic society. It is simply forbidden to completely hide one’s face (carnival days being an exception) and allegedly religious arguments are subordinated to civil laws. The N-VA feels that, contrary to what people opposing the burka ban are saying, the ban does not lead to Moslems being stigmatised.
