* Curiously, though, does anyone know... Is it actually headscarves that have been banned in France (e.g. like the one in Nil's current avatar) or is it only the veiling of the entire face that has been banned? I seem to be finding conflicting info. via a Google search.
The Niqab (full face veil) has been banned, but the more modest head scarf is only banned in French schools (but not universities). I am not sure how it works in convent schools.. do the nuns have to take off their scarves??

Anyway its fair to say that the French left seem to be obsessed by this flimsy piece of fabric.
