France's ban on the niqab has been ruled a violation of human rights, The U.N. Human Rights Committee said on Tuesday.

In a landmark ruling the UN moved to support wearers of the full-body Islamic veil and ordered France to repay two French women convicted for wearing niqabs in 2012.

The committee said in a statement that France had failed to make the case for its so-called 'burqa ban' and ordered it to review the legislation. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6306593/Frances-ban-body-Islamic-veil-violates-human-rights-U-N-rights-panel.html

Banning Muslim's women to wear their niqab is a violation of their freedom of religion. But we also have to consider the security and safety of the masses.

Do you agree to ban the niqab? And do you think this is discriminatory?

Let's not get too far... Hijab on the other hand is considered freedom of religion.

Or we could just mind our own business and let people do what makes them happy.

Not sure people are happier, not sure what the husband does, not sure about anything here, but these women might be extremely ignorant if they flee the violence of a religiously ruled country and not realize that the niqab might have something to do with it. It's sad anyways.

It's a security risk so yeah you can turn a blind eye until something happens to you because they had their face covered so nobody noticed who they were before they could have been stopped.

Most do. It’s not legally required. It is required for all Muslim women to cover their face and body if they are visible by non-mahrams. Abandoning the sunnah is abandoning Islam. Prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings upon him)said “whoever turns away from my sunnah has nothing to do with me.”

(al-Bukhari 5063)

Aisha(R.A.) used to say:"When (the Verse): 'They should draw their veils over their necks and bosoms,' was revealed, (the ladies) cut their waist sheets at the edges and covered their faces with the cut pieces."

(al-Bukhari 4759)

Aa’ishah said: The riders used to pass by us when we were with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in ihraam. When they came near us we would lower our jilbaabs from our heads over our faces, and when they had passed by we would uncover our faces.

(Abu Dawood 1562)

The Prophet stayed for three rights between Khaibar and Medina and was married to Safiya. I invited the Muslims to his marriage banquet and there was neither meat nor bread in that banquet but the Prophet ordered Bilal to spread the leather mats on which dates, dried yogurt and butter were put. The Muslims said amongst themselves,"Will she (i.e. Safiya) be one of the mothers of the believers, (i.e. one of the wives of the Prophet ) or just (a lady captive) of what his right-hand possesses?" Some of them said,"If the Prophet makes her observe the veil, then she will be one of the mothers of the believers (i.e. one of the Prophet's wives), and if he does not make her observe the veil, then she will be his lady slave." So when he departed, he made a place for her behind him (on his camel) and made her observe the veil.

(al-Bukhari 4213)

A woman called Umm Khallad came to the Prophet(peace and blessings upon him) while she was veiled. She was searching for her son who had been killed (in the battle) Some of the Companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon them) said to her: You have come here asking for your son while veiling your face? She said: If I am afflicted with the loss of my son, I shall not suffer the loss of my modesty. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings upon him) said: You will get the reward of two martyrs for your son. She asked: Why is that so, Messenger of Allah? He replied: Because the people of the Book have killed him.

(Abi Dawood 2488)

It was narrated from Aisha" that Safwaan ibn al-Muattal al-Sulami al-Dhakwaani was lagging behind the army. He came to where I had stopped and saw the black shape of a person sleeping. He recognized me when he saw me, because he had seen me before Hijab was enjoined. I woke up when I heard him saying"Inna Lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raajioon (verily to Allah we belong and unto Him is our return)," when he saw me, and I covered my face with my Jilbab."

(Muslim 2770)

You choose the country to stay follow the rules, if we go to other countries we have to follow the rules too.
