France bans burqas and niqabs!

edited April 2011 in - France
Hello Everyone

The French government's ban on burqas and niqabs starts today (April 11). The penalty for wearing these garments
in public is a fine of 150 Euros.

How are Muslim travellers going to respond to this? Should they boycott France?

I see the law still allows for hijabs and chadors to be worn, but is this enough?
