A Rambøll survey done for Jyllands-Posten shows that the Danes have no problem with the veil. The Danish People's Party head has lately suggested a total ban against the veil in all public institutions, however that proposal does not have the people's backing.
38% of the party's supporters back the proposal. The party's leader called the survey "discouraging".
"I think the Danes have not realized what the veil really means. The most say 'God it's just 30 grams of textile'" says Pia Kjærsgaard. "They can't see what it means, that it's a sign of the oppression of women and that people don't want to be part of Danish society, fully and wholly."
Danes generally think that it's ok to wear a veil, hijab, which covers the head, neck and shoulders, but leaves the face visible. 71% do not want any ban on the hijab, while 15% think it should be forbidden in public .
Opinions on the niqab, which covers the entire face, are different. 48% of the population think that it should be banned for civil servants.
