    It does still apply Zeebub. And ive looked into it; the UN says it doesnt violate our human rights. So why not ban it, if a government is suppose to be practising secularism, why shouldnt its own institutions be secular too? Good move by Sarkozy.

    Any opinions?
    I'm in two minds.
    Should a Govt. be able to legislate and ban such things or is this good and will help social integration?
    No, the government should not be able to legislate and ban such things. It may be good for social integration, I really don't know; but it's not the government's problem and they should butt out. Till such time in which rights are infringed upon, the government has no business sticking its nose in it.

    Re: France considers banning the burqa

    IMO, the French are doing the right thing.
    One reason is to uphold French nationalism and their culture.

    The Arabs are free to go home.

    They are also closer than we are to the Islamic terrorism, too much can be hidden under these vestments/attire..
    Anyway, its their nation, their laws..
    This is probably upsetting to the Islamics and their supporters....
    Too bad

    Just one little problem, there. The "Arabs" are already home. Many of them are French citizens.

    And Turkey wishes to join the civilized world ?
    This is a stupid law, one very difficult and costly to enforce..
    Ours is not the only nation with intellectually challenged lawmakers.

    Which law are you talking about worm, the Turkish law that was established by Atatürk, or the law that some are attempting to bring in in France?

    Well actually its not illegal to wear headscarfs in public.
    Its illegal to wear them in government run institutions such as the police force, educational academies, etc. In public and on the street is perfectly acceptable, though they are not encouraged to do so.
