France Wants To Study Burqa Wear, May Ban It In Public
Any opinions?France wants to study the small but growing trend of burqa wear, with an eye to possibly banning the Islamic garment from being worn in public, the government's spokesman said Friday.
Luc Chatel told France-2 television that the government would seek to set up a parliamentary commission that could propose legislation aimed at barring Muslim women from wearing the burqa and other fully covering gowns outside the home.
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?
