France bans burqa but tolerates nudity http://www.abna.ir/data.asp?lang=3&Id=236416
The ban came into force on Monday and was followed by immediate arrest of nearly 60 women that defied the ban by walking outside the famed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. A recently-surfaced video, meanwhile, featured a naked male running around the country's streets while trying to cut a figure as a pole vaulter. Kenza Drider, a young Muslim that left the southern city of Avignon for Paris to participate in a television program on the day the ban became law, was among the detainees. "This law infringes my European rights; I cannot but defend them, that is to say my freedom to come and go and my religious freedom," she said.
"This law breaches these rights," said the mother of four. Her husband, Allal, said, "According to this law, my wife would have to remain cloistered at home, do you find that normal?” “They come here for their liberty for their freedom to dress as they want. I thank them to come here to defend this form of liberty,” said a female supporter of the Muslim women. “I think the law is nonsense. Politicians have nothing better to do than attack our veils,” said another Muslim woman that had taken his child out while observing the Islamic dress code in spite of the restriction.
