i've heard some schools in some countries forbid their student wear veil. for example, France. As a secular countries, they argued that any simbol of any religion couldn't be appear in the school. Does wear veil disturb study activity in the school. I guess not!!! Whatever the reason, forbid student wear veil in the school is against the law and human right!

I'm trying to see this a different point of view. If the country forbid moslem ladies to wear veil for showing symbol of religion, or disturb study activity, I think it was the biggest bulls*#t in the world. If they forbid the moslem then they should forbid the christian to wear cross pendant or earrings too. But if their reason is to make government easier to reduce the number of criminal action, I may agree. I mean if someone wearing veil you can't see the face figure correctly, even some man can disguise as a moslem lady. And it would give the religion a bad name. Of course the chance is so small but there's no chance for mistakes.

Change your school or college. Go to some Muslim College or school where you can not find such problems. also criminal actions, they know you and your family they have all the data with them so you will not do any such act because they can catch your root. those people who are responsible for such activities have no root they come and just do these things. if they had roots they might have been caught. also Muslims name is just used for such activities as we all know that. so, government will try to tease common people like you and me, but dont worry, there is a good thing coming after a bad one. take care ALLAH HAFIZ

To forbid the student from wearing a veil is outragious. I am very surprised at France for this, if the rumor is true. A veil can be a symbol of a girls modesty, or her sense of fashion. I think it is absolutely wrong to forbid the wearing of a veil regardless of the religion.

I agree with you 100%! I think Muslim women should be able to wear their hajib to school, work or wherever. It is so acceptable today for students to dress in disrespectful manners and workers in the workplace do the same. However, when a woman wants to wear a hajib, they are looked down on or forbidden in many places. Our society is so accepting of showing flesh, though. It is disrespectful and ignorant.

I am sorry but i have to talk truth here most of the people in that part of the world wants muslim women to look like their women. they want to take off our clothes and take away the real islam inside us, when Hijab will go out of muslim women, the feeling of being protected will be lost by them. and it will look almost the same as western women, then what will be the difference. We should not change our culture. they are trying to take islam out of muslims. be ready for new things..

These kind of restrictions are in those societies where the religion or the values of religion are considered the psychology disorder. To them to practice relligion is not acceptable in this modern Era.Especially Islam purposely portrayed like this that every one seems hat Islam. If any women want to show his body part in public or school is ethical but if some wants to cover her face or body parts is unethical. So now the decision is on you. Do you allow your sister or mother to be half naked in public.The answer will be No. So now How these societies are altering those who wants to show respect t their body parts. I would say such kind of false ideologies will die soon and the light of righteousness will illuminate.

I actually believe that insisting that outward indications of one's religion be banned preserves more human rights than it removes. Insisting that religion become strictly a private thing protects the rest of use form those who worship the god of Abraham, whether they be Jew, Muslim, or Christian. The persecution of those who do not worship that particular god would be more difficult if you couldn't tell by a casual glance, what someone's religious background is.
