Want to wear a Burka in Switzerland? Better have 10 thousand dollars set aside or else you might find yourself going to jail. In a new move, the Swiss government has banned the Burka in certain canons, and violators will face up to a 10 thousand dollar fine for violations:
A ban on burkas has come into force in part of Switzerland with anyone wearing a full face veil subject to £8,000 fines.
Authorities in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino rolled out the restriction on July 1, banning people from wearing the garment in shops, restaurants and public buildings.
The local government in the southern Swiss state approved the rule after a referendum in September 2013 saw two in three voters backing the move.
The Swiss Parliament said the ban does not violate federal law.
Visitors coming into Ticino will be informed at airports and by customs officers at the Italian border it is illegal for people to hide their face under a burqa or niqab, while in the state.
The ban on the burka echoes similar legislation put in place in France, where women can be fined an initial penalty of £35 for wearing the garment, which can be increased to £150
All these laws are good an important, but it must never be forgotten this is but one small step. The real fight is the complete dislodging of Islam from European society, which will only come from reconversion to the Faith. However, given all that is happening in Europe, it is something as opposed to plainly submitting to Islam like in Germany and many other places.
