  • French police make woman remove clothing on beach

    I was wondering how this is play out in practice. The linked image is quite bizarre.
    Authorities in 15 towns have banned burkinis, citing public concern following recent terrorist attacks in the country
    Take my advice, I don't need it.

    If politicians are under pressure to stop mass murders, they will try to take action, although this may seem something of an easy target, as opposed to say closing down mosques etc.which might actually be more effective. Having said that, symbolism is also effective.

      What a mess, eh ! Trying to outlaw religion-based modesty as a terrorism prevention! Will be interesting to see how it all plays out !

      I can't imagine wanting to lay in the sun fully clothed in black (or in her case some blue too) ... but hey ... from her perspective it must have been attractive.

        Recent news is the French High Court has said the banning isn't lawful....so those mayors are going to have to wind their necks in.
        Mind you...in Saudi....women cannot use the swimming pool the same time as men.....nor eat at the same table in a restaurant unless married.

          Interesting to see how these "class of cultures" things all develop!

            I guess women wearing bikins in Saudi might also get fined?

              The plot thickens, most mayors that have instituted the ban are refusing to budge.
              I wonder how much of this is just pre-election posturing.
