Denmark’s Ban on Muslim Face Veil Is Met With Protest

News by:

Denmark’s ban on face veils in public took effect on Wednesday, setting off protests and reigniting a debate over a law that rights groups say discriminates against Muslim women.
The law, passed in May, does not specifically mention Muslim dress — it states that “anyone who wears a garment that hides the face in public will be punished with a fine� — but protesters say Muslim women are the intended target.
