Austrian conservative politicians called for a ban on full body veils Thursday, saying the veils would hinder women to integrate into the mainly Catholic Austrian society.Public debate about a ban on full body veils was ignited in several European countries after three French Mediterranean cities banned body-covering Muslim burkini swimwear, saying the burkini defies French laws on secularism.
