Muslim woman wearing a hijab walks with a girl past a delicatessen in Milan
A Muslim woman wearing a hijab walks with a girl past a delicatessen in Milan October 7, 2009. Italy's anti-immigration Northern League party is pushing for legislation to prosecute women who cover their faces with burqas and veils, prompting a new debate on Muslims' religious freedom in the Catholic country. The Northern League, allies of conservative Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, want to amend a 1975 law, introduced amid worries over homegrown guerrilla groups, which punishes with hefty fines and up to two years in jail people covering their faces with anything preventing their identification by police.
