In the Netherlands, the burqa ban was enacted. The ban applies to clothe that covers the face completely or partially. The ban applies to all sectors, including public transport, hospitals, and educational institutions.
After over a decade of deliberation and debate, the Burqa Prohibition Act is being introduced in the Netherlands. In a statement, the Netherlands Home Minister said that the face masks would be illegal in the country from today. The law, which was passed in June last year, is applicable from now.
