Germany: City Uses Taxpayer Funding To Promote Wearing Burkas

From Voice of Europe:
The Adult Education Centre (VHS) in Dresden will present a course next summer called: Dress codes in Islam. Participants can test burqas and other ‘women oppressing’ Islamic garments.

According to the course book “colourful headgears make curious about the wearers” and people can try out “how a burqa feels”.

The initiative is criticised by Muslim feminist Seyran Ates, who thinks that the course consolidates the traditional role of women in Islam. “The language used in the description of the course uncritically diminishes the worldviews behind the cover: a society in which the sexes are as far apart as possible”, she said….

A spokeswoman of the education centre says “that she sees it as a place of integration. The course is “value-free” and serves citizens to form an opinion.”…The event is funded with taxpayer money from the City of Dresden.
