French senate passes face-veil ban
Too little too late. A band aid, no more. The police is unable to enforce this law, because the soldiers of Allah will riot instantly to prevent enforcement. Even so, most of them are on the dole, and they can’t be forced to pay from their minimum allowance. France will go down with the hideous shrouds as the jihad continues…..
The French senate has voted in favour ofÂ a billÂ to banÂ face-covering veils in public, a proposal that has sparked fierce debate in a country thatÂ is home to WesternÂ Europe’s largest Muslim population.
SenatorsÂ approved the measure by 246 votes to one, with most opposition senators abstaining in protest.
The law has already been passed by the national assembly but still has to be vetted by the constitutional council, France’s highest legal body.
Critics of the proposed lawÂ hope that the councilÂ willÂ overturn the bill.
Some rights groups have voiced concerns that the legislationÂ risks raising Islamophobia, in a country where some Muslim women already face harrassment for wearing the veil.
If implemented, women caught wearingÂ face veilsÂ in public places, including streets, markets, government buildings, private businesses and public transport would be fined $190.
Men who force their wives or daughters to cover for religious reasons would face tougher penalties of up to $38,685 and a one-year jail term.
Upper house approves bill outlawing wearing of garment in public places, amid concerns move may heighten Islamophobia.
