European Law Against Face Covering

European Law Against Face Covering

In 2011, France became the first European country to impose a ban on full-face veils in public areas including schools. It is illegal to wear a face covering veil or other masks in public spaces. Penalty can go up to 30,000 Euro ( $35,000). The rationale behind this law is that face covering prevents the clear identification of a person. This poses a security risk as terrorists may use face covering to kill people. Another rationale is that forcing women to cover their faces is sexist. Those who are against this law argue that the ban encroaches on individual freedom and is against Islam. Given the fact that Europeans travel everyday across borders, should this ban be enforced in all European countries or should this law be revoked? Does France have the right to pass such a law that targets Muslims? Does the rationale of the French government make sense to you? Please answer any of the above questions
