An unintended consequence is some Muslim women will stay indoors rather than showing their faces in public. This will make them even less socialized to Austria and it will appear their numbers are less than they are.
The Austrian government has issued posters and leaflets threatening Muslim women with fines for wearing face veils ahead of the introduction of a controversial ban.
The authorities launched the publicity drive to raise awareness of the legislation outlawing niqabs and burqas, which will come into force on 1 October.
Under the new “integration” policy, anyone wearing clothes that obscure their face in public can be fined €150 (£132) and must remove the offending garment “on the spot” if ordered by police. Those who refuse can be taken to a police station.
