S07E01 – France & face veil – The debate



Is France right to ban the wearing of face veils - like the niqab or burqa - in public? An interesting televised debate, part of the doha debates series (from 2010), with speakers including: Jacques Myard, French politician,UMP party
Nabila Ramdani, French journalist and academic
Farzana Hassan, Canadian author and activist
Mehdi Hasan, NewStatesman magazine

The debate was held prior to the implementation of the law - a law which has now, in July 2014, been upheld by the European Court of Human Rights (where it was initially challenged).
