France bans the Burka
In a straight clash with the religious obligations of the Muslim community, France has become the first nation of the European continent, in the whole world to legally ban the veil or what we call the ‘burqa’ or ‘naqaab’. It means that a lady, regardless of her religion cannot wear a veil which covers her face and if she wears it, then it is legally punishable act. A lady cannot wear the veil in the public places, as per the law passed. However the lady still has the option of wearing the burqa in their homes, which is obviously of no use whatsoever because it is a tradition in Muslim community to wear veil while going outside.
