Switzerland is going to make a law against face coverage as well. Not only for muslims but for people that hide their faces in general. In a part of the country this law was enforced for a while already now and they got positive experiences from it.
It is how it should be written on paper. If you're gonna ban something, make it for everyone, independent from religious affiliation, gender, or anything else.
However, lets not be hypocrit about these kind of laws. These laws were introduced solely in response to muslim women covering their face. There are no other relevent exemple of anyone else walking with their face covered in the streets.
My take on this is as follow: if indeed there is an actual threat for society to have people walking around with their face covered, wich is not an unreasonable position in my opinion, then it is totally fair and just to ban face covering.
The problem is, this is hardly ever the argument used by politicians who push for these kind of laws, who prefer to invoke cultural differences, tradition, women oppression, and other bad arguments that often undermine personnal freedom in favor of the "opinion of the majority".
This is with this kind of thinking that you end up with grotesque and stupid laws like the burkini ban in France (who thankfully was overturn by France "supreme court").
And in the case of France, what make me even more frustrated is that these kind of arguments doesn't come from the extreme right wingers, but actually comes from the establishment in power atm, who is supposed to be left leaning (but who might as well be call moderate-right winger, since the only "progressive" policy we ever got from this government was gay marriage, and some
progress on climat change . Economy wise, it is all right wing liberal/free market policies, and on other social issues like the war on drug it is still a disaster and the government went even further in the wrong direction)
