Thank you Jason Kenney & Canada. As Canada bans veils at citizenship oath ceremony.


French veil ban:Monday, 11 April 2011

As other European countries consider a ban on Muslim women wearing veils, would the UK consider a similar thing?
A private members bill has already been put forward calling for a ban on face covering and polls suggest most people in the UK want to follow in France’s footsteps.
But Muslim groups in the UK say what France is doing is offensive and fuelling hatred of Muslims.

Canada bans veils at citizenship oath ceremony. 12 December 2011

Canada’s government has introduced a ban on the wearing of veils while swearing the oath of citizenship.
Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney told a news conference in Montreal anyone wanting to become a Canadian would have to show their face.
He said citizenship judges and MPs had complained it could be hard to tell if veiled applicants were actually reciting the oath.
An estimated 940,000 Muslims live in Canada, about 2.8% of the population.
Veils and face coverings are already banned in Quebec for people receiving some government services.
Canada is considering a wider ban on veils in government offices, schools and hospitals.

You should be willing to show yourself in that public act of witness” Jason KenneyMinister of Citizenship
Mr Kenney dismissed the idea that the ban could infringe the religious freedom of those taking the oath.
“This is not simply a practical measure,” the Conservative minister said on Monday.
“It is a matter of deep principle that goes to the heart of our identity and our values of openness and equality.”
He added that Canadian law took priority over religious doctrine.
“In my view Canadian law takes precedence,” he said.
“This is a public act of witness in front of your fellow citizens, in front of the law and you should be willing to show yourself in that public act of witness. I think it’s very straightforward.”
Mr Kenney also announced further language requirements for new immigrants.

The Islamic veil across Europe 22 September 2011

Countries across Europe have wrestled with the issue of the Muslim veil – in various forms such as the body-covering burka and the niqab, which covers the face apart from the eyes.
The debate takes in religious freedom, female equality, secular traditions and even fears of terrorism.
The veil issue is part of a wider debate about multiculturalism in Europe, as many politicians argue that there needs to be a greater effort to assimilate ethnic and religious minorities.
