Berlin: Burqa-clad woman assaulted, verbally abused inside store 20.2.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
German police say a Muslim woman wearing a veil covering her entire face and body was attacked and verbally abused inside a Berlin store. Police today said a 28-year-old woman insulted the victim and ripped the veil of the burqa from her head. The attacker then followed the 54-year-old victim out of the store and continued shouting anti-foreigner abuse at her before being detained by police. Police gave no more details of the incident. Last year the German Parliament approved a government proposal to ban the wearing of all veils that fully cover the face by public employees in schools, courts and other institutions. Anti-Islam groups have called for a total ban on the wearing of all full-face veils in Germany. The new laws, which were passed in April, follow several terrort attacks, including a truck rampage through a Berlin Christmas market that claimed 12 lives, and come ahead of September elections.

Union minister Ram Kripal Yadav on Monday condemned the statements critical of the BJP by senior leaders Yashwant Sinha and Shatrughan Sinha and said no one approves their comments.

The Babri Masjid will remain a mosque till eternity and Muslims could never exchange the land for the masjid, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said on Sunday, in what is viewed as a virtual rejection of any prospect of an out-of-court settlement of the Ayodhya title dispute.
