ردًا على رفض إحدى موظفات "فرانكفورت" الألمانية الكشف عن وجهها والحصول على تأييد رسمي من قبل إدارة المدينة - قررت ولاية "هسن" حظر ارتداء النقاب على موظفات الخدمة المدنية بمكاتب الولاية، خاصةً المتعاملات مع المواطنين، طبقًا لتصريحات وزير الداخلية "بوريس راين".
وقد أشار وزير الداخلية إلى أنه بالرغم من السماح بارتداء الحجاب إلا أن النقاب لن يُسمح به لمناقضته للقيم الأوروبية.
The German state of Hesse has forbidden civil servants from donning the burqa after one woman wanted to come to work veiled. Meanwhile, media and politicians have questioned whether the woman's motives are financial.
Civil servants in the central German state of Hesse are now forbidden from wearing burqas.
The announcement came Wednesday after a city employee in Frankfurt communicated that she would not reveal her face when she returned from maternity leave.
"Civil servants may not be veiled, especially those who have contact with citizens," Hesse's Interior Minister Boris Rhein said Wednesday after the woman's attorney and the city agreed she would not return to work on Tuesday and would remain home until the situation was sorted out.
Rhein added that, while a headscarf was allowed, the donning of a burqa could be perceived as "hostile to Western values."
A tough choice
The city of Frankfurt had told the mother of four - who previously did not wear a burqa to work - that she must choose between the veil and her job.
City staff department head Markus Frank justified the decision, saying "our employees show their faces. That is a basic requirement for building trust".
