PARIS – France wants to study the small but growing trend of women wearing burqas, with an eye to possibly banning the head-to-toe Islamic garment from being worn in public.
Government spokesman Luc Chatel told France-2 TV that the government would seek to set up a parliamentary commission that could propose legislation aimed at barring Muslim women from wearing the burqa and other fully covering gowns outside the home.
“If we find that use of the burqa was very clearly imposed (on women) . . . we would draw the appropriate conclusions,” Chatel said. Asked whether that could mean legislation banning the burqa in France, he responded, “Why not?”
What woman in her right mind would wear a burqa by her own volition?
