Vienna, Oct 1, 2017: Burqa ban will come into force in Austria on Sunday that bans wearing the full Islamic veil in public places and buildings. The restriction is intended to ensure the cohesion of society in an open society. Any violations of the ban will be penalized with a fine of up to €150 ($177).

The government cites the exemptions under the ban following certain conditions like clown disguises “at cultural events”, scarves in cold weather and work wear such as medical masks.

“Acceptance and respect of Austrian values are basic conditions for successful cohabitation between the majority Austrian population and people from third countries living in Austria,” government officials told Livemint.

The enactment was brought in by the outgoing centrist government of chancellor Christian Kern.

On 15 October, elections are likely to see the anti-immigration Freedom Party (FPOe) arrive second or third and possibly enter a coalition with Sebastian Kurz of the center-right.

Sebastian Kurz, the Austrian politician has endured considerable numbers of voters from the FPOe, polls show, experts say in part due to him moving to the right on issues such as immigration.

“The immigration seen in recent years is changing out country not in a positive but in a negative way,” Kurz told German television in an interview broadcast this week.

Other measures to administer from 1 October will include immigrants signing an “integration contract” and compulsory courses in the German language and “values.”

  • Due to the cold weather of Austria Salman Khan faces health problem while shooting Tiger Zinda Hai.

Tiger Zinda Hai starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will be Released on 22 December 2017

Challenging weather conditions in Austria during the shoot of “Tiger Zinda Hai” led to a health issue for actor Salman Khan, says director Ali Abbas Zafar.

Talking about shooting for the film in the locales of Austria, Zafar said in a statement: “What we see onscreen might look a lot easier than it actually is. Sometimes, sequences like the ones shot in Austria can be difficult to achieve.

“For a significant chapter in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, we had to film in a place that had a certain amount of aloofness and isolation. We found that spot in the mountains of Austria, a place where time seemed to stand still and frozen.

“Shooting here meant dealing with unexpected situations. Literally, a lot of pain had gone behind this sequence. Salman developed a health issue, but he still trained to film here and delivered on a tough action sequence.”

The team shot a song there.

“We had expertise on our side since we worked with an international crew that has worked on the latest James Bond film ‘Spectre’. In the end, as a team, we are fairly satisfied that we managed to film here successfully,” he added.

“Tiger Zinda Hai”, which also stars Katrina Kaif, is a sequel to “Ek Tha Tiger”. It is slated to release on December 22 and has been shot across five countries. (IANS)
