Hijab ban in French schools

28th Mar 2014

Sir, Their whole argument is wrong. Hijab is not a symbol of Islam. Some people wear the hijab even though they are not Muslim. People choose to view the headscarf as a symbol of Islam. If many of the Muslim men grow their beards does that mean that men should not grow a beard or otherwise they will be expelled since long beards are “symbols of Islam.”
This is ridiculous, I understand there are too many immigrants and Muslims in France and that the French are getting annoyed by it. But seriously, if you are going to decide to ban the headscarf in schools, at least provide a legitimate reason. And what is the point of passing a law that isn’t going to benefit anyone?
