Denmark has banned the wearing of face veils in public, joining France and other European countries in outlawing the burqa and the niqab worn by some Muslim women to uphold what some politicians say are secular and democratic values. Parliament Thursday voted for the ban proposed by the center-right government, which says veils are contrary to Danish values. The anti-immigrant Danish People's Party became the second-largest party in an election that year and now supports the coalition government in Parliament.Ibn Hssain rejected suggestions that wearing the veil symbolized the rejection of Danish values or oppression of women.
