Supported by the government of France ban Muslim swimsuit (burkini) could trigger terrorist attacks. This was stated by interior Minister of Italy Angelino Alfano, according to Politico.
“The responsibility of the Ministry of internal Affairs is to ensure the safety and to solve problems with the utmost seriousness, however, to avoid provocations that could lead to attacks,” said Alfano.
According to him, the prohibition of bathing suit in several French cities this summer “will not contribute” to improve the situation.
The Minister is expected to focus on monitoring mosques, including by ensuring the training of imams.
Recently the mayor of the French city of Cannes David Lisner forbidden to wear on the beaches of Muslim bathing suits that completely cover the body. He called burqini, “a symbol of Islamic extremism,” and said that wearing this costume may provoke a fight.
