“It is incompatible with the values of the Danish society or the respect for the community to keep the face hidden when meeting each other in the public space,” Justice Minister Justice Soren Pape Poulsen said.
An excerpt from The Independent:
The Danish government is poised to become the next European country to introduce a ban on Islamic full-face coverings in public places.
The government said it planned to fine people who wore items including the burqa and the niqab which are worn by some Muslim women.
Under the proposals anyone found covering their face would be fined 1,000 kroner (£120), or up to 10,000 kroner (£1,200) if they are repeatedly caught.
