BURKINI BAN LIFTED, BUT SHOCK OF ISLAMOPHOBIA REMAINS

Source: World Religion News

The world was recently shocked by the decision of certain French cities to ban the burkini, swimwear specially designed for use by Muslim women during a beach trip. The burkini is a swimsuit that covers the whole body, including the hair.

The French authorities justified their decision by saying that the new rule was passed to ensure religious neutrality on the beach. The Council of State today reversed the ban, stating French Mayors do not have the authority to put such a rule in place. However, while the ban was in place, several disturbing incidents took place.

In one instance, a Muslim woman was told to remove the full-sleeved tunic she was wearing in front of everyone on the beach at Nice. This inhumane act by four armed policemen was also accompanied by a fine for wearing what the police thought was a religiously threatening piece of clothing.

In another similar incident, a Muslim woman in Cannes was forced to do the same, even as her daughters were crying at the plight of their mother. According to a non-Muslim French eyewitness other people were cheering the police and shouting “go home.” Many such incidents have been occurring regularly after the ban on the burkini.

  1. The Council of State is correct to act on behalf of the people of France. It would be, under present ‘religious pressure’ admissible to have the religious identities of the “French Mayors” checked. The contents of the Qur’an (‘Bible in the same boat’), are transliterations from the jews scriptures (predating the Qur’an and the Bible). The jews are living in all countries under cover of the Qur’an and Bible. The Charlie Hebdo incident is an example of how trouble is ignited under cover.
