Commenting article: Bulgarian MP's Pass Law On Banning Burkas

Bulgarian deputies passed the law on banning the wearing of garments that cover or hide the face, more popular as the law on banning burkas.

In the middle of June, the draft bill of the Patriotic Front was passed at first reading after heated debates in Parliament. The ban is expected to be in force at public institutions, places related to providing administrative, educational and public services, places for public recreation, sports and culture.

According to the initiators of the bill, the wearing of such garments may facilitate acts of terrorism with a potentially large number of victims. The ban will not be in force at people’s homes and official places of worship.
