Victoria state parliament bans keffiyeh scarves

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

The Australian state of Victoria has ruled that MPs cannot wear keffiyeh scarves - a symbol of Palestinian identity - in parliament.

Green Party leaders asked for clarification after MPs for the party were asked to remove their keffiyehs.

In a joint ruling, both houses of the Parliament of Victoria said the scarf was a "political" symbol which MPs were not permitted to wear.

The ruling makes the Victorian legislature one of the few in the world to enforce a ban on the item of clothing.
