This still has a long way to go.

The highest court in France has warned that the ban could be contrary to the French Constitution and that will have to be sorted out before it goes before the Senate in September to be passed into law. Muslim groups are already in the first stages of mounting a challenge to the law in the European Court of Human Rights. However, the French have been clever in not mentioning the islamic face-veil in the bill and the ban will be on all 'face coverings'. Should the law get through all this, the real problems will begin with enforcement which is likely to lead to extreme violence.
Also, a muslim millionaire has started a fund with a million euros, to pay the fine of any muslim woman who is fined.(no doubt the Saudis will be adding to that fund).

'Woman In Burqa Condemns Woman In Chador'

GHAZNI, AFGHANISTAN—Outraged by the recent loosening of dress codes in her country, burqa wearer Uliya Salah condemned fellow Afghani Raheela Asaad Monday for appearing in public wearing an upper-face-revealing chador.

"Just look how she dresses, the bridge of her nose visible for all the world to see," said Salah, watching Asaad walk past her in downtown Ghazni. "Has she no shame?"

Not wanting to risk the chance that a stranger might be forced to hear a woman's voice, Salah whispered her indignant remarks through the small mesh square in her garment.

"Perhaps one could wear that sort of thing in the deepest recesses of one's home, where even male family members are not allowed," Salah said. "But doing so in public like that is outrageous. The harlot may as well strip off her veil and reveal her hair to the world."

As a strict follower of Pashtun traditions, Salah said she finds it laughable that Asaad considers herself to be a devout Muslim."

France denies citizenship to Muslim man

A Moroccan man who refused to shake hands with a French female official and whose wife wears the full Islamic veil has been denied French citizenship, the immigration ministry said Friday.

The man, who has been living in France since 1999 and married a French woman in 2004, failed to "assimilate into French society" and displayed a "discriminatory attitude toward women," said the ministry.

He "refused to shake the hand of a female official whom he met at the state prefecture because it was 'against his religion'", said a statement.

The man's wife wore the full veil and only agreed to uncover herself in a room where no men would be present, the statement added.

The decision was announced a few days before the National Assembly is to vote on a bill banning the full-face Islamic veil as part of what the government has described as an effort to assert French values.
