An Italian politician who has received death threats for her campaign against the oppression of Muslim women has proposed making it illegal for under-age girls to wear a headscarf.
Daniela Santanche of the right-wing National Alliance party was quoted in Thursday's Corriere della Sera as saying she would submit a bill to parliament forbidding minors from wearing "any kind of veil".
"Eleven or twelve-year-olds are not able to decide on their own," Santanche was quoted as saying. [Link]
