FrP’s Parliamentary proposal to ban burkas and niqabs in public has been binned.

Yesterday, a united Coalition and Opposition voted against the suggestion, saying it would only cause women who are subjected to severe suppression by their husband further problems.

“All repression must be combated but by means of open debate, not with sanctions that affect the victims,” Jan Tore Sanner, deputy leader for the Conservative Party (H) tells NRK.
