City of Nijmegen: Official apologizes to woman with niqab banned from playground

A woman wearing a niqab has received an apology from the municipality of Nijmegen on Sunday afternoon. The woman and her family were visiting "De Leemkuuil" playground.

A discussion arose in the playground about the woman's garment in connection with the prohibition of face-covering clothing, which came into force in the Netherlands on 1 August.

The playground, however, does not fall under the so-called burqa ban, after consultation with the police and the municipality. Afterwards apologies were offered to the woman.

In the not so distant future, that ordinance will likely be repealed and replaced. With what superior personal protection equipment (PPE)? I've no idea.
