The controversy has raged for decades, years and today France has for the first time introduced a ban on Muslim women wearing the Muslim Veil or Burqa or any form of face covering in France and will be penalized and a fine will be imposed. The discussion abot the wearing of the Veil in Public Places in France has been hot news now for sometime so it was constantly "upfront" as to whether ornot the French Government would see the threat through so obviously it has. So I suppose for the Non Muslim Women, we sit on the sidelines and wonder why it is necessary to introduce a law but rather would have hoped that women of the Muslim Faith would have cast aside the Muslim Veil, the Burqa or Face Covering of any sort when out of a Muslim Country or in France. Apparently to sort this dilemma out the people behind Muslim Women wearing the Muslim Veil, the Burqa or any form of Face Covering may be fined as well. Thanks BBC Radio 3 News Team .... old habits die hard!
The ban is necessary in order to enforce the law and views of France and France is a major player in the European Union so it must be an interesting result for countries who come from a Muslim background to shed The Muslim Veil now before and when resident France to avoid paying a heavy fine! Hard work pays Up!
I have worked in a Muslim country and got used to Muslim women wearing the Muslim Veil, The Burqa and Face Covering and in fact its so common in say Muslim countries that it is like the theatre of life in these Muslim countries where I have worked and gone on holiday!
