14 Mar, 2015

Therefore the Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe (Germany) revising a judgment of 2003. What looks like a judgment for democracy and freedom, is on closer inspection only a “half-judgment”. Because the court still allows a ban on headscarves in schools in case of “sufficiently specific threat” to the peace of the school.
