'A German college has provoked massive public outrage with its Muslim face veils course. The move was slammed as supporting the oppression of women and promoting Islamization, claims which the college denies.
The “Headscarf and Hijab in Dresden – dress codes in Islam” – listed by the Dresden adult education center as part of its curriculum for the spring and summer semester – stirred the wave of public indignation. The one-day course offers participants an opportunity to get an insight into the “origin and meaning” of various female dress codes in Islam.
However, it was apparently the course description on the educational facility’s website that ignited the outrage. “Colorful headgear makes one curious about its wearers. Various colors, forms, binding techniques and materials give hints about the cultural background [of the people wearing various Muslim face veils,” it says. It added that participants would have a chance to try on some Muslim female head wear to discover “how it feels to wear a burqa.”
The description further says that the course was supported by Dresden city authorities. The German public, however, apparently found the educational initiative inappropriate, and its promotion spurred a barrage of critical comments on the college’s official Facebook page.'
