Bavaria bans teachers from wearing head scarves

Bavaria bans teachers from wearing head scarves

The southern German state of Bavaria has banned women state school teachers from wearing Islamic headscarves and other religious insignia in schools.

The ruling conservative Christian Social Union says the ban is designed to protect pupils from the influence of Islamic fundamentalism.

Bavaria's culture minister says the veil is widely abused by Islamic fundamentalist groups as a political symbol.

Bans on teachers wearing headscarves have already been introduced in four of Germany's 16 federal states, but they stop short of banning pupils from wearing them.

France introduced a ban on state school pupils and teachers wearing headscarves earlier this year, sparking criticism from Muslim groups that it represents a form of discrimination against Islam.
