Burka-ban here to stay!
The European high court for human rights has decided that the ban on wearing Burkas by the French Sarkozy government does not violate human rights. A French muslim had sued claiming that the ban was discriminatory.

From the link (maybe dodgy translation):
Quote:The judges, however, now declared the burqa erected a barrier between the wearer and the environment and thus undermines the feeling of living together in a society.

I'll bet that bee-keepers are pissed off!

In fact, don't clothes, in general, erect "a barrier between the wearer and the environment"?

Pretty sure the judges were speaking of the social environment, and not the natural environment! Tongue

I believe we all feel the burqa is a restriction on a women's freedom. I do. However, I believe it's a violation of human rights to be told what not to wear when the apparel is significant to culture/religion. Also, I am concerned that women who feel they must wear the burqa will be compelled to leave France. This is not a positive ruling for human rights: it's not going to free anyone, just run certain women out of France.

Shame on France and the European High Court for targeting cultural/religious clothing for women.

I'm with you up to that point ^^^

And also... to be told what not to wear.

The religious significance or otherwise is irrelevant.

I have no problem with a community deciding what policies / rules it wants to have in place to achieve its vision of harmonious societal living (or whatever its vision might be).

Laws against clothing restrictions (rather than imposing restrictions) make more sense to me.

An exception could be on the grounds of 'health and safety' but that could be in the form of 'guidance' rather than 'law'.
