just wondering what people thought about it?, obviously we know the main target will probably be islamic headscarves but all religions will be affected.

secularism is important to the french (and i think a lot of other european nations though i cant see too many others having the balls to implement such a law) so surely they have a right to protect this?

or maybe this is just a latest episode of islamophobia in the West?

please discuss

I think its stupid. Secularism means religion should not set the laws and politics of the country. But you should still let people be religious if they want to. Remember, it is Freedom, Equality and Brotherhood. Lets not remove the blue part of the tricolour. The only exception would be those dresses which prevent you from identifying students. Theres actually some practicall reasons why you are not allowed to wear a burka on your drivers license picture...
