Austria’s President really said this! During a talk with students, the president said if “rampant Islamophobia continues, there will come a day when we must ask all women to wear a headscarf – all of them! – out of solidarity towards those who do it for religious reasons”.

Legislation was put in place to ban the burqa causing protests from Muslim women who called the government “Islamophobic”.
