No burqas in Bavaria

Germany’s largest state is to ban full-face Islamic veils in schools, polling stations, universities and government offices as intense debate continues over a nationwide law.

Joachim Herrman, Bavaria’s interior minister, said the burqa and niqab were not compatible with Germany’s “communication culture” after a draft law was adopted by the state cabinet.

“A culture of open communication with one another is part of the free and democratic understanding of Christian values,” he added.
