A bill on the right of regions and schools to ban the wearing of the niqab was submitted to the State Duma – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

It is also proposed to grant such powers to municipal assemblies. It is explained that we are talking about “religious and other clothing that totally or partially hides the face.”

It will be possible to ban the use of the niqab in schools, universities and colleges if more than half of the members of the parents’ council vote in favor. In addition to niqabs, other clothing with religious attributes and (or) religious symbols may be prohibited.

The author of the amendments recalled the threat of terrorism. Therefore, in his opinion, it is necessary to limit the use of clothing that hides the face in public places, since a person with a covered face cannot be identified by a CCTV camera. Furthermore, it is important to consolidate the secular nature of education and create equal conditions for all students in order to avoid discrimination on religious or cultural grounds, the explanatory note states.
