The roughly 100 imams and Muslim religious advisers from 40 countries participating in the meeting in Vienna agreed that Islam doesn't make it a requirement for women to wear face veils and saw little need to discuss it because of consensus on the matter, said Carla Amina Baghajati, a spokeswoman for the Islamic Religious Authority in Austria, which hosted the meeting.
"Nevertheless, we are critical that it comes to a ban," Baghajati said.

The laws proposing bans on face-covering veils promote a stereotype that there is "something dangerous" about Muslims and that they don't respect women's rights, Baghajati said.

Carla Amina Baghajati, the media spokeswoman of the Islamic Faith Community in Austria, is getting to the point when she says that Muslim women - particularly if they wear headscarves - are the subject of more or less any discussion related to the theme of "Islam in Europe" ranging from the issue of integration to questions of security. She says that "this is usually done without asking them and by talking about them rather than with them."
Regarding the wishes Muslim women voice with regard to politics, Ms. Baghajati sees two levels of what remains to be done:

Carla Amina Baghajati, a spokeswoman for the Islamic Community of Austria, told RFE/RL that top European and Austrian officials will attend the opening of the Vienna gathering.

Baghajati told RFE/RL that Austria, the current EU president, intends to give new impetus to dialogue and better understanding between European countries and their Muslim communities.
"At the moment, Austria has the [rotating] presidency of the European Union, and in this situation, it's, I think, a very good sign that Austria is picking up the long tradition of dialogue, especially with Islam, and gives something like an impulse to European countries [on] how to build bridges, how to find solutions to the challenges we face together, and to talk together -- and the inner Muslim dialogue is very important as well," she said.
European Muslims have found themselves under increasing pressure lately.

Baghajati said that the current crisis highlights the need for European Muslims to reaffirm their dual identity as good Muslims and law-abiding, integrated citizens of a democratic Europe.
"Muslims, whether they are in Great Britain, in Spain or in Russia, share the same feeling that we are part of Europe, and we want to be seen as part of Europe, and we want to get over all these misunderstandings about Muslims," she said.

Carla Amina Baghajati, a spokeswoman for the Islamic Religious Authority in Austria that hosted the meeting, says such bans are counterproductive. She says they give the impression that there is something dangerous about Muslims and that they don't respect women's rights.
Baghajati said Sunday that conference participants agreed that wearing such veils is not a theological necessity and that a discussion within the Muslim community has helped keep the number of women dressing this way in Europe to a minimum.
