The new French law will affect less than 2000 women, but carries huge symbolic significance. Do you see it as Islamophobic and unconstitutional?
The French senate approved a law banning any veils that cover the face -- including the burqa, worn by some Muslim women. The law was passed by a vote of 246 to 1, with about 100 abstentions coming essentially from left-leaning politicians.
In France, less than 2000 women will be affected, but the fact that wearing a veil is of religious importance in some cultures, makes us question the ruling.
VOTE: Do you see the banning of the burqa as Islamophobic and/or unconstitutional?
