outside the French Embassy on April 11, 2011 in London, England. France has become the first country in Europe to ban the wearing of the the veil and in Paris two women have been detained by police under the new law.

Laszlo Toroczkai, the mayor of southern Hungarian border village Asotthalom, proposed banning of supporting same-sex marriages, as well as building mosques and wearing headscarfs, last year on his Facebook page.
He wrote: “Instead of looking for a scapegoat, I offer an immediate solution, a defense against the forced mass resettlement [of migrants] by Brussels.” Other than two abstentions, all of the board voted in favour of the proposed new rules. The Constitutonal Court in Budapest has now ruled that it goes contrary the country’s constitution and violates the basic human eights such as freedom of conscience, religion and speech. “Today the Asotthalom village council adopted my proposal – which is an action package – to defend our community and traditions from any plan for the outside resettlement [of migrants]. All that needs to be done is for the rest of Hungary’s municipalities to adopt our preventative action package, and with that we will have defended our homeland,” said the mayor on announcing the policy. The Mayor’s party is known for promoting racism, homophobia and antisemitism under the coverage of the ‘traditional values’.
