The so-called “burqa ban” in France (July 13, 2010) suffers from even graver flaws than the 2004 hijab ban, insofar that it extends paternalistic coercion from children onto adults. The article further explores the question as to whether, if there are relevant differences between the hijab and the niqab, they have any bearing on the normative case against legal regulation, including within state schools.
