Bavaria, one of Germany’s more conservative states, passed a draft law on Tuesday that bans Muslim women from wearing burqas or niqabs in certain public places.

The Bavarian government announced on Tuesday, “Covering up your face will be banned in areas of public service, in high schools, schools, kindergartens, in areas relating to general security and during voting.”

According to The Local, Joachim Herrmann, Bavaria’s interior minister said that when Muslim women cover their faces, they are “breaking the local culture of communication.”

He added, “A communicative exchange takes place not only through speech, but also through eye contact, facial expressions and gestures. This is the basis of our interaction with one another and the foundation of our society and our free democratic order.”

Bavaria had previously ordered a national ban on burqas in public. The law is just a way of cementing the ban.
