German restaurant in Islamic veil row after woman expelled

Source: BBC

A restaurant manager in Bielefeld, northern Germany, triggered a social media storm after expelling a woman wearing the Islamic full-face veil (niqab) from his premises.

On Facebook, Christian Schulz said he had to defend his Seekrug restaurant against “negative judgments”. So, he said, he had “deleted two of my posts with nearly 800 comments”.

Currently the comments on his page are overwhelmingly supportive.

He strongly denies claims of “racism”.

His Facebook page displays photos of him with a Seekrug chef who is apparently African. German media report that he employs staff from Nigeria, Ghana, Pakistan and Portugal.

Mr Schulz told local newspapers that in the past he had also expelled visitors wearing Thor Steinar clothing, which is popular among neo-Nazis.
