In France, a controversial decision was taken regarding the clothing of Muslim female students.
It was announced that the wearing of loose and long clothes such as “sheets and abaya” in public schools would be prohibited.
“It will no longer be possible to wear chador in schools,” said French Education Minister Gabriel Attal in an interview on a television program.
Claiming that the laws regarding secularism in the country were violated, Attal argued that the religion of the students should not be determined by looking at their clothes.
In France, headscarves were banned in schools in 2004 and veils were banned in public in 2010.
Last year, the regulation preventing athletes from wearing headscarves to competitions was approved.
In France, the pretext of protecting the values of secularism is put forward for such decisions.
