(Manisha Mahar, Intern Journalist); Germany’s state Baden-Württemberg has banned the wearing of girls’ burqas in schools. Now they will not have to wear the burqa in school, this state already has such a law for school teachers, teachers used to teach without burqa and mask, now even girls will not have to wear them.

Germany’s neighboring countries France, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Austria have a complete ban on the burqa, but in Germany, it is seen as a democratic right. According to a survey conducted in 2019, 54 percent of people in the country are in favor of banning the burqa.

In Germany, there has been a long debate in schools over face and head covering. A recent case has surfaced in the Baden Württemberg state of West Germany where the state government has banned it in schools. In February, a Hamburg court ruled a similar law was illegal in the city, this time Winfried Kretschmann of the Baden Württemberg chief minister’s Green Party said that this is rarely seen in his state, but whatever the case may be. Yes, it was necessary to control them legally.

A few months ago a case in Hamburg came to light where a school forbade a girl from wearing a burqa. She appealed against this in the court and the court rejected the school order as false. The court said that this is possible only when the state government enacts a law regarding schools. After this, the debate on the law of the banning of Burke was sparked in Hamburg.
