The German Chancellor has called for a burqa ban after saying the "'full veil is not appropriate."
"The full face veil should be banned, wherever legally possible," she said, at her conservative CDU Party conference.
She also stressed her determination that there will not be a repeat of this year's migrant crisis, as she made her pitch for a fourth term as Chancellor.
She is running unopposed for a new term leading the CDU.
She previously told Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland that: "A completely covered woman has almost no chance of integrating herself in Germany."
The proposed legislation must now go before the Senate for approval before becoming law.
The proposed legislation follows the Netherland's decision last week, where Dutch MPs voted to ban the Islamic full-face veil from public places such as schools and hospitals.
The burqa is already banned in public places in France, Belgium and Chad.
In a 2011 poll by the Journal, up to 50 percent of Irish people think that the burqa should be banned.
A photo which claims to show Kendall Jenner wearing a burka as a disguise has sparked outrage online as commentators believe the act is disrespectful towards Muslims.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was subject to a stream of social media based abuse for the picture which was posted to Instagram by DJ Neptune yesterday, but already people are questioning the authenticity of the image.
While the model is reportedly spending time in Dubai as her family recovers from the trauma of Kim’s Parisian robbery, The Sun has highlighted a number of inconsistencies with the photograph which suggest it may have been digitally manipulated.
Clues like the DJ’s bent right ear and the way in which the sun hits Neptune’s shoulder suggest the shot – which purports to show the 20-year-old model standing outside the Burj Khalifa – has been altered.
Despite the strange nature of the pic, Twitter users have bombarded Kendall with abuse for allegedly using a burka to avoid the paparazzi.
One person wrote: “Kendall is the epitome of white privilege, if any of yall are defending her dumbass wearing a burka re-evaluate your entire lives (sic).”
While another said: “Kendall Jenner wore a burka to hide from the paparazzi and is being praised. Us Muslim women wear it and get insulted left, right and centre.”
Kendall has yet to address the controversy online, but a second image of her and the DJ has since been posted to his account.
It shows the pair posing before allegedly going for dinner.
