  • Generally, scarves, clown disguises and medical masks will be banned in public
  • Restrictions are aimed at ‘ensuring the cohesion of society in an open society’
  • They came into force today and anyone violating the rules will get a €150 fine

A Muslim woman was forced to remove her veil today as the ban on full-face veils came into force in Austria.

Items concealing the face in public places, such as the full Islamic veil, medical masks and scarves to cover faces have been outlawed.

Only under certain conditions, such as ‘at cultural events’, will people be able to wear them in public.

The laws are aimed at ‘ensuring the cohesion of society in an open society’ and anyone violating the rules could be hit with a €150 fine.

  2. Muslim Women who live in non Islamic country have to obey the existing authority or the rule of the land, ALLAH WILL FORGIVE or leave to other country.
    To obey the rule of the land is order of Islamic teaching.
    Please leave your hijab at home. You will be fine.
