An anti-immigration group in Norway mistook a picture of empty bus seats for a group of women wearing burkas in an online post fuelling Islamophobic hate.

The picture was posted in Norwegian Facebook group "Fedreland viktigst", which translates as "fatherland first", alongside a comment which read: "What do people think of this?"

Many members of group began writing anti-Muslim comments, suggesting the photo was "scary" and proof that a ban against burkas is needed.

According to the Washington Post, more than a hundred people commented on it with one Islamophobic user saying: "You can never know who is under there. Could be terrorists with weapons."

In June, Norway's Government proposed a ban on burkas and other face-covering veils in a move which follows France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria. It comes after an increase in Muslim immigration in Norway.
