30% of women wear a mask
Earlier this year, the University of Lucerne claimed in an investigation that no woman in Switzerland wears burqas. While 30% are women who cover their face with a mask when going to public places. This reference is opposed to the Muslim community living in Switzerland.
Opinion sought from citizens by referendum
Months ago, the Swiss government proposed that no one cover themselves publicly, or in areas where services are equally accessible to all. Since then, this proposal has been rejected by many organizations. Seeing no way, the government had sought the opinion of the people by referring to it. Which was voted on Sunday.

Who is in favor of Burka Bain?
The proposal to ban the burka in Switzerland was raised by an organization called Egerkinger Komte. The organization includes politicians from the right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP). These leaders strongly oppose the infiltration of Islam into Swiss politics. The main argument of the party is that the independents show their faces. They believe that the burqa and the nikah are not common clothing because they are said to be a symbol of fair gender discrimination and oppression.
