Kuwait urges France to reconsider hijab ban law
The State of Kuwait has recommended France yesterday, in front of the Human Rights Council, to reconsider amending the law of banning wearing religious symbols for students in public schools, including hijab, to suit with freedom of beliefs and continue the efforts in fight against racism towards foreigners, and develop the social integration policies for immigrants.
The adviser of the permanent Kuwaiti delegation at the United Nations in Geneva Malik Al-Wazzan, said in a speech that Kuwait is interested on the national report of the Republic of France that was displayed in front of the Human Rights Council, which shows the great efforts to ensure and protect the human rights in discrimination and inequalities towards foreigners and those with different beliefs. Al-Wazzan also congratulated French Human Rights Ambassador Francois Zimmeraa and his accompanying delegation, on the national report presentation which shows its close cooperation with the international institutions and with the UN Human Rights Council.
