Finally some common sense.

Denmark just passed a law banning face veils, outlawing the burqa and niqab worn by some muslim women. People can still wear party costumes or pull up a scarf during cold weather, but its up to police to determine if the law is being broken, in which case a fine of 1,000 kroner (€134) must be paid.

Denmark’s Justice Minister Søren Pape Poulsen said covering one’s face was “disrespectful” to others and “incompatible with the values in Danish society.”

Denmark follows France, Belgium, Bulgaria and parts of Switzerland, who have similar bans.
