In a referendum in Switzerland today, 51.2 percent voted in favor of banning the burqa.

The bill was passed by a referendum in a fierce contest, despite many speculating that the bill would be defeated.

The hardliners were of the opinion that clothing was not something that belonged to the face. However, some parties claim that the bill reverses women’s rights.
