A new bill that promotes the banning of Islamic veils at major airports, Centrelink offices and citizenship ceremonies will be presented in Parliament.

Australian Conservative leader Cory Bernardi wants the burqa and niqab declared outlawed in state-owned places, which would include the entire Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory.

Bernardi, a frequent critic of the full coverage of the heads of Muslims, wants the bill to be debated in Parliament before the end of the year.

While the government has said previously that it does not have the power to ban controversial veils, Bernardi believes that federal law allows a partial ban.

Bernardi, who does not oppose Islamic coverage that does not cover his face, said the burqa is a "massive security risk," The Daily Telegraph reported.

& # 39; That [the burqa] it is a direct challenge to our cultural norms and our social expectations. It's a way for a group to isolate itself, "said Bernardi.

& # 39; It's common sense. If you are at an airport, you need to show your face, if you want a Centrelink payment, you should show your face, if you are swearing allegiance to Australia, you should show your face.

In June, Bernardi praised the ban on the burka in Denmark, which punishes the use of the burqa or niqab in public with a fine of 1,000 crowns ($ 218).

"You should not be able to cover your face in public buildings," he told Triple M.

The leader of One Nation, Pauline Hanson, provoked indignation while wearing a burka in the Senate last year, while calling for a similar ban.

"If you want to do it in your backyard, that's fine, but what good is having security cameras or CCTV if you do not know who is hiding underneath?

"It's the flag of Islamic fundamentalism, and we do not want Islamic fundamentalism in this country."

Opponents of the illegalization of Islamic facial veils say those laws are a violation of rights that prevent women from choosing how to dress.

They fear that a ban will cause some women to refuse to leave their homes if they are required to show their faces.

Austria, Germany, France, the Netherlands and Belgium have similar prohibitions to use full face veils in public.
