French Veil Ban Limits Freedom of Expression
The French Veil Ban now passed in the lower house of parliament, represents further reduction in the freedoms of French citizens, by not allowing them to decide for themselves whether or not they want to wear a veil. Also, the Ban infringes on the right to freedom of religion, and awards extremist elements in France who are intolerant ethnic groups.
Whether an individual wants to cover his or her face in public or private should be his or her choice. The French government has no right to tell French citizens what to wear, unless what is being worn is harmful to the well-being of others.
