Austria passes law to ban headscarves donned by minority girls in elementary schools

Austria passes law to ban headscarves donned by minority girls in elementary schools

Vienna, May 16 (UNI) Austrian parliament has passed a law that aims to ban headscarves worn by girls from minority community in elementary schools, with the legislation now expected to be challenged in the nation's top court.

According to a parliament statement released on Wednesday, the legislation was proposed by the ruling right-wing coalition comprising the People's Party and Freedom Party and adopted late on Wednesday with less than two-thirds of the vote, failing to obtain the status of a constitutional law.

"Parliament members from the coalition parties underscored that [the law] was about sending a clear signal against political Islam and subjugation of women and girls," the statement said.

The ban refers to the headscarf as a head covering that hides all or large parts of the hair, but the legislature stressed that this would not apply to kippas won by Jewish boys and Sikh patkas.
