French Muslim convert threatens legal action over 'burkini' ban | World news | guardian.co.uk
This has nothing to do with any ban on burkas (which there is not) but is a health issue.The local authorities in Emerainville said the case had nothing to do with Islam, but regulations stated that garments bigger than standard swimsuits, including men's board-shorts, could not be worn in pools for hygiene reasons.
This woman is the one that is brining the supposed "ban" which does not exist into the picture and using her "religion" as another lightning rod in a society that is secular. If she wants to live under Islamic law, move to an Islamic country and suffer the consequence.
This is no different than a public pool in the US banning topless women or any other sort of "clothing".. like say wearing shoes in the pool.
