Wilders: Introduce Tax on the Muslim Headscarf

During the annual general political debate in the Dutch Parliament Geert Wilders leader of the PVV (Freedom Party) has proposed that any Muslim woman who wants to wear a Muslim headscarf has to apply for a license. They will also have to pay 1000 Euro per year. Wilders proposes that the money will go to womens emancipation projects. He added that he would prefer to ban the Muslim headscarf but this is legally not possible. The other parties reacted with disbelief to the proposal.
