France Votes To Ban Hijab Islamic Headscarf For Under 18-Year-Olds

French lawmakers have voted in the French parliament to ban the wearing of the hijab in certain circumstances and to ban girls under 18 from wearing the hijab entirely. The ban also includes parents on school trips and the wearing of a full body swim-suit in public pools.

The hijab is the headscarf worn by some Muslim women. It should not be confused with a burka or nikab that covers the entire face.

In order for this to become a law, the bill must now also pass the National Assembly.

Critics of the hijab state that it separates women from society and that it is a sign of religious dominance and sexism. They also state that it violates the secularism of France. Since the French revolution in the late 18th century, there has been a powerful separation of the church and the state, which means that religious services and religious symbolism are banned from the public sector, including schools.

Right-wing French senator, Bruno Retailleau, told reporters:

"Each time we have proposed to toughen this text, especially vis-à-vis the veil and ostentatious signs, the government has backed down. Stop telling us that the veil is only a piece of cloth while it characterises the claim of the Islamist ideologists to impose on us a counter-society, separate from the national community… The situation is extremely serious."

Critics of the ban say that the real reason that politicians have opposed the hijab is because they are Islamophobic, or because they simply want to oppose Muslims living in French society, a veil for their racism.

Amnesty International Europe is one of the groups to oppose the ban on the hijab, they said:

"Time and again we have seen the French authorities use the vague and ill-defined concept of 'radicalisation' or 'radical Islam' to justify the imposition of measures without valid grounds, which risks leading to discrimination in its application against Muslims and other minority groups."

Several European countries have put bans on burqas, but none have outlawed hijabs except in certain settings. Those that have completely banned the burka in public places include the Netherlands, France, Austria, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Belgium.
