#Burka Ban

# burka-ban - Tuesday 13 July, 2010

FRENCH MPS have voted to ban women from wearing the Islamic full veil in public, the BBC reports. The ban will be ratified by France’s senate in September and will become law. Fines of €150 for women who wear the veil in public, or €30,000 and one year in prison for men who force their wives to wear it, have been suggested.
