Veiling - GENERAL

Is the complete ban of the face veil the right response?

The ban of Muslim face veils voted on last July went into effect in France on April 12 and two women have already been arrested by the police and one fined.

Since 2004, Muslim school girls have been forbidden to wear headscarves and it would be tempting to see the anti-niqab law as an expansion of the previous law prohibiting religious signs in public schools.
