Austria crackdown government to shutdown mosques

Turkey has condemned the move, which follows Austrian plans to prohibit girls in nurseries and primary schools from wear headscarves, as racist and anti-Islam.

The Austrian government is shutting down seven mosques and expelling imams. It’s part of measures by the chancellor Sebastian Kurz to target what he calls “political Islam” in the country. Al Jazeera’s Dominic Kane reports from neighbouring Germany.
