This morning, from his office in Melbourne, the National President of Rise Up Australia Party, Daniel Nalliah, called on Prime Minister Tony Abbott, and the Government of Australia, to follow the ruling of the European Court of Human Rights, and to, once and for all, ban the face veil in Australia.
From the Daily Mail,
“France’s burka ban does NOT breach human rights law, rules Europe: Court dismisses complaint that law is discriminatory and a ‘breach of religious freedom’
- Muslim groups protested after France passed its ban on the veil in 2010
- But European Court of Human Rights today ruled it is entirely justified
- Ruling likely to encourage other countries to adopt burka bans
An attempt by a British legal team to reverse France’s burka ban was today rejected by the European Court of Human Rights.
In a test case which will have widespread implications in other countries, judges said that the measure aimed at stopping women covering their faces in public was entirely justified.
They said that the right of ordinary people to ‘live together’ was a ‘legitimate objective’, and that Muslim women wearing face coverings threatened it.
France’s parliament passed a burka ban in 2010, leading to protests from Islamic groups who said it was discriminatory.

Mr Nalliah stated, “One of Rise Up Australia Party’s policies in the last federal election was to Ban the Face Veil. https://riseupaustraliaparty.com/?page_id=3161
We stand by this policy and say to the Government, ban it now before it is too late! The face veil is very offensive and exclusive, and I know for certain that many women are actually forced to wear it. Banning the face veil will also bring greater freedom to many Muslim women, who left their Islamic Sharia countries to live in Australia and have greater freedom and equality. Banning the face veil will also assist in their integration into the Australian way of life.”
