The Swiss government imposes a ban on face covering up to 1,000 Swiss francs ($1,005) as it seeks to implement Burqa Law.

“The ban on covering faces aims to ensure public safety and order. Punishment is not the priority,” it said in a statement.

Earlier France banned full-face-covered Burqas in 2011 and Demark, Australia, Netherlands, and Bulgaria have partial bans on covering the face.

Muslims make up around 5% of the Swiss population. Local politicians and media persons agreed to the ” burqa ban”.
