A course offered by an educational center in Dresden that tells how to properly wear the burqa is going forward, despite some outcry from those who say the class contributes to the oppression of women.
What’s even more outrageous is that this course has been sanctioned by city authorities.
That’s right; city officials see nothing wrong with the Islamic teaching.

The course, offered by the educational facility, has been viewed by many internet users as contributing to the oppression of women.
An educational center for adults in Dresden has sparked sharp criticism on social networks over its workshop on Islamic face veils.
The course, called “Headscarf and Hijab in Dresden — dress code in Islam” has been offered by the educational facility as part of its curriculum, with the support of the Dresden city authorities.
The one-day workshop is supposed to give participants an understanding of the “origin and meaning” of various female clothing in Islam.
“Colorful headgear makes one curious about its wearers. Various colors, forms, binding techniques and materials give hints about the cultural background [of those wearing Muslim face veils],” the course description on the college’s website reads.
The announcement further says that those interested would have an opportunity to try on some Muslim female clothing to find out “how it feels to wear a burqa.”
However, what was apparently meant as an initiative to promote cultural diversity has instead caused sharp criticism among the German public.
One social media posted this, as translated into English: These “pieces of clothing” (burqa, etc.) are used in Islam for the oppression of Muslim women! And you offer such a course, which is also funded by the city of Dresden? Or does this mean that women from other cultures who live here should slowly get used to such “clothes”?
Another (translated): We live in 2018 and not in the Middle Age. These cowls (burqas) are anything but curious. This ingratiation with Islam is just pathetic.
And yet one more (translated): Do you also invite women who have been rejected by their families because they no longer want to wear burqas (or other headgear)?
