“France is the first country in Europe to publicly ban a form of dress some Muslims regard as a religious duty……Under the law, any woman – French or foreign – walking on the street or in a park in France and wearing a face-concealing veil such as the niqab or burka can be stopped by police and given a fine” (BBC).

I dont understand how it could be normal to implement this new law. It seems absolutely absurd to make a law banning people from expressing their own religious beliefs, in an effort to make all citizens look equal. I have very mixed feelings about this new law…Im sure many of you will find this article interesting, as I did. Also interesting to read peoples comments on the BBC website.
