BREAKING! Austria Forbids Burqa, Presents Obligatory Integration Courses and…

By

A new law in Austria will forbid Muslim women from wearing any dress that hides and covers their faces as of October.

According to RT, the president of Austria has also approved a law that will stop migrants who fail to take language lessons from receiving benefits.

“Those who are not prepared to accept Enlightenment values will have to leave our country and society.”

Any woman who wears face-concealing Islamic dress, such as the burqa or niqab, in public places will be fined €150 ($168).

Newcomers to Austria will also have to enrol in an “integration course,” that will last 12 months. This course includes German language lessons, and if anyone refuses, they will not receive benefits.

Since the start of the migrant crisis in 2015, RT reports that more than 90,000 people have migrated to Austria, most of the migrants being from Muslim-majority countries outside of Europe.

Austria is not the only country in Europe to enact a law similar to this one.

France was the first in 2010, and it has been copied by other countries, which surprisingly includes Germany.
