Officials rule France burqa ban legal
France's plan to ban the burqa and other Islamic
face coverings in public places is legal, top
constitutional authorities in France ruled
Thursday, clearing the final hurdle before the
ban becomes law.
In September the French senate approved the law
– making France the first European country to
nationally impose such a measure. The
legislation was overwhelmingly approved by the
lower house of parliament in July. It is
scheduled to come into effect in the spring.
French people back the ban by a margin of more
than four to one, the Pew Global Attitudes
Project found in a survey earlier this year.
Some 82 percent of people polled approved of a
ban, while 17 percent disapproved. That was the
widest support the Washington-based think tank
found in any of the five countries it surveyed.
