FRANCE - Act on the veil: a form of Islamophobia?

"The first day of application of the law banning the veil has not gone unnoticed," notes the paper in Dubai, which publishes a photo of the heavy-handed arrest in Paris of a woman wearing a niqab. For the newspaper, France's decision to ban Islamic headscarves in public places full challenges the freedoms that this country is European.

"The entry into force of this law when the ruling party has launched a debate on the place of Islam in French society makes the ban even more problematic."
