Newcomers to France should sign 'no-burqa' clause, says Families Minister
Times of India
Foreigners who come to live in France should sign a contract recognising that the wearing of the full Islamic veil is banned, a minister said on Sunday.
The "no burqa" clause and a second provision rejecting female genital mutilation should be added to the "integration contract" that newcomers have been asked to sign since 2007, said Families Minister Nadine Morano.
The government is drafting legislation to restrict the wearing of the face-covering veil after a parliament report last month called for a burqa ban in all schools, hospitals, government offices and public transport.
