NO VEILS!! Its a safety issue!!

As long as it is presented as a safety issue, the ban would be supported in any court. Do not deviate. Keep it as safety for the general public.

(Reuters) – A French appeals court, ruling in a hotly debated religious rights case, on Wednesday upheld the dismissal of a Muslim daycare worker for wearing a headscarf at a crèche that demanded strict neutrality from its employees.

The Paris court’s decision was announced at the same time as French lawyers defended the country’s ban on full-face veils in public before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

The two cases have divided French public opinion for years, with the bans enjoying wide support in public opinion but being denounced by many Muslims as discriminatory.

France has both the largest Muslim minority in Europe, estimated at 5 million, and some of the continent’s most restrictive laws about expressions of faith in public.

“Today a republican institution has reaffirmed the strength of the principle of secularism,” Richard Malka, the lawyer for the Baby Loup daycare centre, said following the decision.

The Collective against Islamophobia in France (CCIF), a Muslim rights group, denounced the ruling as “a veritable judicial scandal” that meant “nobody is protected against being judged by one’s religious, ethnic or social origin.”

President Francois Hollande initially supported calls to extend the public sector ban on headscarves to some private businesses because of the Baby Loup controversy but backed off when legal advisers warned this could be discriminatory.
