German Chancellor Angela Merkel believes that women in purdah have little chance to integrate in the country. She said this in an interview with RND.
The question of total prohibition of such clothing remains open. According to Merkel, it is a legal and political assessment of such a decision. This deals with the Minister of justice, Thomas de maizière.
De maizière had earlier ruled out the possibility to impose a ban on the burqa and the hijab at the national level.
A week ago 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 – the so-called burkini.
