Clicked by Reuters photographer Andrew Kelly, the photo features a Danish policewoman embracing a visibly emotional woman protesting against the ban. However, a 28-year-old woman in Denmark has already been fined under the new law.

Police can now order women to remove their veils or leave public areas. They also told her to either remove her veil or leave the public area, but she chose to keep her headwear on.

The "Burqa Ban", which was passed in late May, was immediately criticized by global human rights organizations that called it a blatant attack on Islamic citizens of Denmark.

Danish legislators passed the law presented by Denmark's centre-right governing coalition last May.

Violating the regulation results in a fine of 1,000 kroner ($156).

Women gathered in Copenhagen and elsewhere to demonstrate when the law came into force on Wednesday.

Repeat offenders of the ban could be fined up to 10,000 kroner (£930).

Police spokesperson David Borchersen said a fight broke out after the Muslim woman walked into the other woman, who tried to rip her face veil off, at the top of some escalators.

Following the Danish vote in May, Amnesty International's Gauri van Gulik said in a statement: "All women should be free to dress as they please and to wear clothing that expresses their identity or beliefs".

In fact, the day the ban came into effect, around 1,300 Muslims and non-Muslims women marched through the capital Copenhagen to protest at what they saw as an infringement on freedom of religion and expression. "If the intention of this law was to protect women's rights, it fails abjectly".
