Niqab Ban In France Violates Human Rights Of Muslim Women: UN Human Rights Committee

The United Nations Human Rights Committee said France’s niqab ban violates the human rights of Muslim women and risks “confining them to their homes.”

Women in France can be fined up to 150 euros for wearing the niqab, a full-face veil with an opening for the eyes, under a law that came into effect in 2011.

The committee said two women fined for wearing the full-face Islamic veils should be compensated and it called on France to review its controversial 2010 law banning the garment.

“The French law disproportionately harmed the petitioners’ right to manifest their religious beliefs,” the committee said in a statement, adding that France had not adequately explained the need for the ban.

“The Committee was not persuaded by France’s claim that a ban on face covering was necessary and proportionate from a security standpoint or for attaining the goal of ‘living together’ in society,” they said.

They added that the ban, “rather than protecting fully veiled women, could have the opposite effect of confining them to their homes, impeding their access to public services and marginalizing them.”

    I think France is correct in banning the wearing of Niqab. Today bombing is common – whether in market places, railway stations, air ports, etc. If someone throws a bomb while wearing a niqab and run away, is there any way to catch the culprit? What is more surprising, while throwing the bomb or placing a exploding device at a place where people gathers, and escapes to a no-go-zone how will the law enforcing authorities apprehend the criminals.

      Ayathuray Rajasingam:

      Not just today, bombing was common for Sri Lanka even 2 decades back. What is not common is today or 2 decades back is throwing a bomb and run away.
      .
      The terrorists we had never used a face-cover to kill innocent children, women and men or to kill MPs, ministers, presidents to other country’s presidents. Once an evil mind decided and supported to kill the innocents and not-so-innocents without differentiating, they will do it in-front of 100’s of cameras too. Terrorists we had, terrorized the country to create an “egalitarian society” by killing mostly the innocents in public places, buses, trains, markets etc.

        Covering the face is very scary and we should know whom we are speaking to. That is the right of other people.
        There is certainly a conflict of interests. It may be a muslim cultural right to wear a face cover, but is also other non muslim people’s right to know the identity of whom they are talking to or interacting with.

        In that case why cannot we go to a bank or jewelry shop with a helmet?

        Muslim can have their face covered in their own homes but when they are outside in the public area people should know to identify you by the face. Face is the most important part of the body for identity.

          I agree. Let the Muslim women be in their homes interacting only with other Muslim women similarly covered. If they interact with others in society particularly non-Muslims I think the latter non Muslims must decide for themselves whether to interact with them or not. This is not a recent practice. and non-Muslim women have interacted with them with covered faces in the past and perhaps should do so in the future as well.I see no new issue, Let security requirements apply where they have to apply,

            I think that the Niqab was invented by Male Imams to keep the Muslim Male Dominant.

            The solution would be to ask Allah to allow the Appointment of Female Imams.

            Do Male Muslims feel so insecure that they have to keep their Women Covered up to protect them from other Males?

            In this Day and Age, Women should be given the Right, to choose what they want to Wear!

        I think these women should be forced to express their thoughts. Like frogs in a well would no thave seen much, these timid women are mentally abused by having introduced the kind of face covers to them. If women should wear them why not men in such groups ? Why women to be treated that way ? I believe that the men of these women are highly dominat and treat their women as they would get on with animals.

        It is high time these women to come out of their capsules and speak out.

        Even if they belong to a group of muslims, they should also have own feelings.
        Every woman would want to well dressed and enjoy their freedom. Specially women are such they want to show their beauty. That should be the reason them to use that much of MAKEUP in daily life.

        Native Vadda, Opposing to a fascist oppressive religion practice is not racism. It is about Humanism.

        Islamic nations force non Muslim women to wear niqab. For example Christians Buddhists Hindus of Iran or Pakistan. These are pre Islamic indigenous people.
        They are forced to wear Niqab or subject to brutal punishment.

        How racist is that? How Fascist? How Islamist is that? Most fascist racist bunch in the word are using racism to defend their religious Fanaticism.

        Muslims must blend into the local French customs and values if they want to live in Europe. Do they expect French to adjust themselves to match Islamic culture? If Muslims do not like European culture then they should not come to Europe at the first place.

      Dark Tinted glasses are band for the car windows but NIQAB is allowed in Srilanka. How do you identify whether the person is man or woman. If they don’t want to get out on to the roads that is their problem. When customers enter a bank or Jewelry shops they are asked to remove their caps and helmets. However, if you request for the removal of Niqab, you may be charged with attempted rape.

        Whoever the terrorists, they are prepared to do anything. The latest is the terrorists hire a vehicle and plough it through innocent people. I cannot understand one thing. The Muslims have 52 Muslim countries some of which are richer than some Western countries. Yet they go to Western countries enjoy their life at the Tax payers’ money and resort to terrorist acts. So what is wrong with France if it takes some preventive measures to reinforce its security? Just imagine what happened to Charlie Hebdo, Paris shooting, truck ploughing at Nice, etc.

            India is still unable to solve the problem of ts people. See the plight of Rajasthan people some of whom are still doing the scavanger’s job. In Western countries Tamils are given opportunities as a result Tamils have become MPs, Councillors, Trustees in School Boards, Doctors, lawyers, engineers. Can a Tamil imagine all these in India. Remember Western countries give due respect human beings. They do not cut and chop people like barbarians. They even encourage for building temples and integrate with all communities. There is lot to mention. Briefly the Westerners are a cultured people.

          rbh, that is because of the UN convention that anyone fleeing their country because of violence they face has to be given refuge in the country they enter. Except the countries who are not signatories to this convention others has to give. At the start of LTTE conflict no Sri lankan knew this. Anton Balasingham kindle the conflict to flare up so on the pretext danger to life he opened the way for all Tamil Kallathonis to take the boats to West. There are Muslim and non-Muslims working illegally in the rich Muslim countries but once they are caught straightaway deported, no refugee status. In Singapore before deporting they beat with canes as punishment.

      Even today the muttawa’s in Saudi will smack women who show any flesh ie a couple of foreigners in the souk, wearing short-sleeved blouses, were given a smack and asked to cover up. Fair enough!

      When in Rome, do as the Romans. If Muslim women don’t like the strictures in France (or anywhere else…) they are free to return to the more tolerant Middle East where they feel at home. See if the French will miss you.

      The United Nations Human Rights Committee,

      RE: Niqab Ban In France Violates Human Rights Of Muslim Women: UN Human Rights Committee.

      Yes, this violates the rights of Muslim women to remain anonymous, outside the home, and be subject to molestation.

      Similarly, the Sri Lanka Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act of 1951 (MMDA) violates the human and constitutional rights of Sri Lankan Muslim women, and it is a travesty of justice, imposed on the women by the Ulama, who have taken over Islam.

      First LET me to check it with the proper defination of Niquab.:

      A veil worn by some Muslim women in public, covering all of the face apart from the eyes.

      I am a srilanken buddhist living in Europe. I think not just in France but also in any countries in Europe would go for banning such wearings which could hide the identity of the people – can only lead to creat the unpredictable.
      Why to hide your face that way, just because some religions would ask you to do so.
      So long you would live in the countries of their origins, but expecting kind of freedom violating the rules and regulations of host countries is beyond all ethics and morals.
      Like for example, if Hindu adherents would jump into the Rhine river in Germany and start bathing the manner, they were used to do it in Indian Gangas, the germans or any europeans would never agree with you.
      The kind of habbits or rituals known to those migrants can NO means become acceptable by masses in Europe.
      This reminded me once we were taking our lunch – Manchester UK, there had been a street parade, which consisted of various nationalities. There I also saw women wore Niqabs. People though respected, some little ones kept questioning as to why they had been so covered.
      Likewise, if european tourists would behave violating the culture down there, not many lankens would welcome it. That is the same in Europe. Besides, those who tend to migrate to other cultures should be ready to adjust themselves a bit.

      Little children are scared of Niqub wearers. Not just kids but I would also go to mad if my colleagues would wear it while them being with us. These are just basics and we dont need to argue on them.

    Ban here also. Being a Muslim, I really do not see if that is really required in SL. Some women don’t wear covering, some do cover a lot if they are a bit conservative minded regardless of what community they belong to – it should be decided by the girl, not a religion

      Fathima, you are quite right. Niqab was not worn in Sri Lanka and many other countries outside the middle-east 25-30 years ago; so why has this become such an issue for Muslims at large with an exception of a few like yourself? Is this part of Neo-muslim doctrine by the fundamentalist or extremists organization linked to Saudi Arabia? WHAT IF EVERYONE IN THE WORLD DECIDES GO AROUND WITH THEIR FACES COVERED, CITING SOME FAITH OR BELIEF; WILL THE UN SAY ITS OK?

        Richard, without knowing the past don’t write like fool. Long, long before when this Niqab you see now worn by Muslim women, young girls never went out alone and when they go they always wear Burqa with a veil on top to cover the face. When they go in Rickshaws they request the rickshaw puller to cover the front. When they go in car they cover the side glasses with cloth. Very poor families had little choice of wearing Burqa because it was costly. Now the Hijab everyone can afford, beside they don’t need fashionable costly cloth inside. Just two Hijab they can use for years. Time has changed, most are educated and it is their wish to wear what they want. So don’t write nonsense.

You are only writing gangster shit here linking everything to Saudi without knowing the past facts. It was Ayatullah Khomeini of Iran who made wearing Hijab and Niqab compulsory which took on like fire to other countries including Sri Lanka. Before that in Sri Lanka those who want to cover wore Burqa, Mukkatu, Shawl in Salwar Kamiz dress or end of saree. May be now you idiot understand.

      “– it should be decided by the girl, not a religion”

      Not by the Ulama? The Ulama of Sri Lanka, ACJU claims that the MMDA is perfect per religion of Islam. 12-year old girls can be married off without consent, legally raped, and a host of other abuses including that they do not even sign their marriage certificate.

        Amarasiri, explain what is legal rape, do you get such words in the Law Book? If not you are making yourself an idiot. Chattel is personal possession and if your wife/husband, children are not precious personal possession of your life what are they? Animals, or sorry even animals have that personal possession feelings otherwise they won’t come to attack you when you go near their young ones. In Islam women go with their family name instead of their husband’s name after marriage. Non-Muslim women carries (compulsory) her husband name after their name to show they are the possession of their husbands. Why don’t you preach this ‘chattel’ to Christians or other non-Muslims.

          Ralli Ameen,

          Muslim girls and women are chattel per MMDA. The bride does not sign the mattiage certificate, and the only witnesses are those who attest to the transfer of the bride by the chattel owner, Wali. Please produced a Sri Lankan Marriage certificate where the bride has signed. The goats do not sign either, when they are sold.

          Legal Rape, when a girl below age 16 has intercourse with a man, married or not. MMDAallows for legal RAPE of girls as low as 12 years old.

            If legal rape is the girl below sixteen has intercourse with man then there are millions of them marrying and having sex all over the world and this is rape for you. Even if unmarried girls having sex with mutual consent is not rape and the states will not charge them as rape even if below the legal age stipulated by the state for marriage. Rape is forcefully having sex with a unwilling girl or stranger. Who told you girls do not sign the marriage registry book. This and two witnesses are compulsory. The girl’s father or guardian can sign on behalf the girl. Chapter 134, caption 23 of Muslim Marriage and Divorce act says girls who had not attained the age 12 will not be registered. Wife/Husband relationship is precious personal possession. If this is not true for you, you belongs to pig class. Do you know male pig after sex, it will force another male pig to have sex with the same female pig. This is one of the reason pork eating is forbidden. You can verify this. I don’t know why you hate MMDA although non-Muslims have nothing to do with it. May be these instruction taken from your western masters.

    Great job. When Arabs migrate or flee to Europe they need to RESPECT local laws and local customs. Not try to impose “no-go zones” and “muslim ghettoes” or commit violence or force Sharia shit. Full face Niqab is ONLY a Wahabi Saudi fashion from the nation that butchered a dissident journalist. That was done by MBS and his cronies. So we do not want Saudi customs to be considered acceptable in our society. Do Saudis allow us to practice Christianity or to wear a cross openly or you Hindus and Sinhalese to have a statue? NO because that is Saudi law. Now Islamists here will engage in doublespeak about “human rights”. What a bunch of feces. You do not allow even a Buddhist book or a church or a temple in Saudi Arabia. Your ceylonese Mussalman women don’t even know why they wear black head to toe in that stifling humid weather; they do it because they fearfully obey their husbands who return from Saudi Arabia converted to extremist Wahabi intolerant views. The day Saudis allow freedom of worship to Christians, Hindus and Buddhists, you come back to my Country and visit me in Chartres, Loire Valley and I will toast a champagne or a bordeaux with you. Sri Lanka do not allow these fanatics to ruin your nation where most muslims are moderate.

      The Muslims in Sri Lanka show two faces. One to the Sinhalese and another to the Tamils. They act moderate in the Sinhalese areas , because they are afraid of the Sinhalese and the repercussions they will have to face at the hands of the Sinhalese armed forces, police, racists and criminal elements if they behave to the contrary. They have had two bad recent experiences when they tried this. However the story is very different in the Tamil North and East , especially in the east where they arrived as refuges a few centuries ago. They are nasty arrogant, very intolerant and are forcibly trying to impose their Wahhabi fundamental Islamic extremism on the entire east. They do this as they can get away with this sort of behaviour , as there is no one to question them . The Tamil population has no one to defend them or speak out for them , locally or internationally. The TNA politicians are useless only feathering their own nests. The Sinhalese also deliberately encourage this type of behaviour and Wahhabi Islamic extremism in the Tamil areas, whilst keeping this in check in Sinhalese areas, as this suits their agenda and to deliberately create a wedge between the island’s Muslims , who in reality are not of Moor or Arab descent but of South Indian immigrant Tamil ethnicity.

A generation ago the Island’s Muslims were very Tamil in their culture in everyway , now they have discarded their 1000 year old very tolerant Tamil Sufi Islam , that they brought from their South Indian Islam and have now become some sort of pathetic clones of Wahhabi Gulf Arabs. Very soon they will discard Tamil as their mother tongue and in the name of Wahhabi Islam will adopt Arabic or Urdu as their mother tongue .

        Why would anyone else have to bring sanction on Saudi or Sri Lanka to do the right thing. Before we advise Saudi, the stupid Sri Lankies must start looking at themselves.

      See who is talking..Ha..ha..ha.. please tell to the French, the world’s 3rd biggest arms exporter, including illegal arms exporting not to sell arms to Wahabis who kill innocent children in Yemen using the arms you supplied.

      You helped Wahabis kill the innocents with arms and taking part in coalition fighting, now it is your guilty conscience that invited Islamophobia at home

        Fathima,
        Remember after the murder of Saudi reporter, it appears that Muslim Brotherhood is in shambles. Why should we blame France and other western countries. Now what is the position of Sri Lanka Muslims regarding the murder of Saudi reporter. Till now none of the Muslim politicians or Imams has raised a voice. Isn’t it a cowardly act?

    Every religion adopted the cultural practicesa of the country that the religion was practiced. So, all these niqabs, burkas are those of the Desert cultures. So, sunnis not only practice Wahabism, peoduce children to change the naturalized country’s religion and the culture, chenge the food practice, banking system and everything. Europe has a reaL BIG PROBLEM. So, the western human rights are desroying the west.

    The United Nations Human Rights Committee can tell France but France will not listen. This is the hypocrisy of white people. They violate human rights and come to preach us. Demalu (Hindu and Muslim) are migrants to Sinhale. We should not allow them to do whatever they want. Unfortunately our spineless opportunistic politicians are trying to please them and accept their demands simply to come to power. This is the dark side of the election system we have. Must change.

    Niqab violates women’s rights & Niqab ban violates Muslim men’s right.

    Alas; UNHRC is in favor of men?

    For Muslim men, women are just objects to be handled as they want.

    So the UNHRC is the biggest culprit.

    That’s the reality.

    France is right; arrest all the men who don’t allow women to leave home without Niqab & rehabilitate or banish.

      Muslim husbands dump a Niqab on his wife and leave her at home. You guys force your wives to wear a company uniform and dump them into crowded buses, trains and sexual abuses to make money – There is no basic respects for a woman here, forget about rights

        Nobody forces wives into crowded buses /trains & ask to work.

        It’s their will to do that. They enjoy their freedom. If they want to stay home they can do it easily & if what hubs give isn’t enough they can demand more.

        If they work it’s mutually agreed thing so you Muslim guys need not shed crocodile tears for that.

        If hubs are drug addicts because of Muslim drug sellers, their wives know how to rehabilitate them.

        Keep the flattering words you use to your wife, for your self.

        If there’s sexual abuse, our women have a right & strength to slap the abusers.

        Non Muslims don’t frighten & threaten women.

        Parents don’t decide to ordain children as monks. Who told you this lie.

        If a child was found interested only parents do it but there may be exceptional cases where a poor mother hand over a child to a temple to see the child is more comfortable & get education.

        A Buddhist monk has a right to de-robe whenever he feels that that monk life is enough for him.

    The French Culture is more human and superior to Islam Culture. The Muslims must be grateful to their host countries for letting them live totally free and happy.

    How can niqab be said to be a right? The opposite is true. It is really a tether to which muslim women are tied. In the 50s and 60s muslim women walked on the streets with a purdah. The full length black gown and black mask is a post-saudi migrant worker phenomenon. If moslem women want rights let them first get out of the black garb. If they fight for it they are fighting only for their enslavement.

    It’s comical to see in high flyer schoolgirls’ exam results of int’l schools muslim girls appearing with only their eyes seen. Poor things I am sure all of them would like to be featured with their full faces just like other children appearing there. One distinct advantage the printer has is he need not be too meticulous about the names matching the photographs. The schòolgirls themselves will not know the difference.

      I saw a depiction of a Muslim schoolgirl who had obtained very good results in the examination displayed on a banner outside a local school. She was wearing a mask and even her eyes were not visible behind the two slits. The school could simply have published only her name without putting that silly image that defies logic on the banner. Doing this sort of thing only invites ridicule!

    MUSLIMS:
    Having see this comment thread, I am quite happy that Muslims have taken the right decision historically – that is to be with and support Sinhalese.

    No wonder from where the 24-hour ultimatum mindset of Prabakaran came from. No matter what differences Muslims and Sinhalese might have, we will continue to be with them. Tamils are very jealous of Muslims (of course there are exceptions and gem of people) for doing good not leaving the country when we faced challenges.

      Yes please do and the Sinhalese as a reward will use you against the Tamils and then bash you up more and more just like in Amparai, Kandy and Aluthgamma. . So you admit that your backstabbing turncoat low caste Dravidian immigrants from South India , have been with the Sinhalese against your fellow non MuslimTamils from independence for petty gains and positions and helped them in their genocide and war crimes. This means what the LTTE did in chasing you out of the north was justified , as you were spying for the Sinhalese and fermenting trouble in the north , just like the atrocities committed by the Muslim home guards against the Tamils in the east. Idiotic person the Sinhalese have been deliberately creating a wedge between you and your fellow non Muslim Tamils for their advantage and using you Muslims against the Tamils but have no intention of rewarding you with anything. May throw a few scraps here and there like you do for a dog as a reward, nothing more. In fact they hate you more than the Tamils, however much you bootlick them. May be you are a Muslim opportunist who really does not care but want to bootlick the Sinhalese and get your petty rewards.

          Lots of Sri Lankan Muslims land in places like Australia and Canada and claim asylum stating that they are ethnic Tamil Muslims fleeing Sinhalese persecution . Some may be your close relatives. Tamil when it suits you and Tamil haters other times. Typical mentality of a converted low caste. So what if I now live in Australia. I can live anywhere I want and that is none of your business. No one is stopping you from migrating . Sour Grapes? I came under the skilled migration category and not as a refugee. I applied and migrated to Australia from another country where I was working. It is not that easy to get refugee status in Australia or most western countries , They check your background your story and now even your ethnic origin and now even your spoken Tamil dialect , as they are now aware that many Sinhalese, Sri Lankan Muslims and others were falesely claiming asylum stating they were Tamils. The war forced us to leave due to the activities of Sinhalese racists and Muslim opportunists like you . There is nothing for me to be ashamed . It is you and the Sinhalese racists who should be ashamed forcing us to leave our homeland where our ancestors have lived and ruled our land for thousands of years. People fleeing persecution like the Syrians and Rohingya do not have to be ashamed , it is the people who are persecuting them who have to be ashamed . Proves what thoroughly mixed up person you are . Morally bankrupt not knowing what is right or wrong. Jealous that the Tamil diaspora are largely well off and fuming. Go and get a life idiotic person. For all I know you may be Sinhalese deliberately posting under to Muslim ID to create mischief between the Tamils and Muslims. Sinhalese are well known for this. Posting lies and propaganda under various identities.

Most were who sold all their possession and legally settled down there or those who went on students visa and settled down there.

      That is good Hubby. there are some racist extremist groups among Sinhalese and Muslims and Tamils trying to divide us. But we Must forgive them and move forward. After all We are all blood relatives. Many Muslims mothers were Sinhalese women. Lankan Tamils are also by blood much more related to Sinhalese than to Indian Tamils. I always feel Muslims treat and respect Sinhalese much better than Sinhalese do to Sinhalese. I think wearing a Niqab make a women safe and respectful. But it must be forceful. We all three communities must stick together. Not just one or two.

    Why did the tamils go to the western countries not go to india

    • 1

      Tamils can go anywhere they want. Why just to India? Why don’t you go , after all it is the Sinhalese and Sri Lankan Muslims who migrated from Tamil Nadu and not the Sri Lankan Tamils. Only the poorest Tamils landed in India and even amongst them the more adventurous and cleverer ones moved to the west, as they knew what will happen to them in these Indian refugee camps. Look at the plight of the 100000 Sri Lankan Tamil refugees languishing in the Indian refugee camps and the current situation of 1million Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora who moved to west. The former treated as outsiders, illtreated , discriminated, poverty stricken and not allowed meaningful work other than manual labour with no hope for them or their children. The latter thriving prosperous , their children highly educated professionals , owning their homes . Only a small percentage of them failed in their new homeland. Whereas in India only a very small percentage of them were allowed to thrive. this too because they married into the local Indian population and have now lost their identity. Happy. Why do most Sinhalese and Sri Lankan Muslims run to the west ? Instead of to mother India/Tamil Nadu or Muslim lands? Can you answer me this question? Tamils left because of discrimination persecution , why do Sinhalese racists and backstabbing low life .pretend Arab converted low caste immigrant Indian Tamil Muslims in the island , now calling themselves Sri Lankan Muslims , want to migrate to the west badly?

        You may be very right with some thoughts about some false accusations
        being made by tamils/muslims specially when they apply for asyulum in those countries. We as then students, happened to work with german and swiss court authorities in order them to be clear the issues. There, I got this information.

        There had been tamils and muslims that had stammered own stories but depicting the hindu worshiping displays by which their devotion is shown to onlookers by piercing their skin with hooks and spikes in Hindu festival. So for the europeans, these sound as truths. However, later they become aware the lies being added by them. These lankens have not proper reasons to claim asylum in anywhere. So long their processes go on, they are entitled to rely on state funds. But these people are real parasites. Germans and swiss believe today the numbers of real asylum seekers came from SL or the like countries are much less than they believed before (30% or much less). This information is refered to mid 90ties.

    Never mind the niqab, I saw Sheikh Mahktoum at a race meeting in the UK in full top hat and tails. He looked a pukkah sight but I was not sure whether he was in fancy dress. Similarly, many years ago, I saw Upali Wijewardena at a race meeting at Ascot in full Arya Sinhala. Now that was definitely fancy dress. The thing is that neither of them looked sinister, and in fact both owned winning horses.
