The Mayor of Orange wants to forbid the Islamic veil in his community

    Mayor of Orange Jacques Bompard, a memeber of the Movement for France and an ex-Front National, queried about the legal possibility of the prohibition of the Islamic veil in his community, in a letter made public Wednesday. “I have the honor of soliciting the services of the prefecture in order to study together the possibility of a prohibition of the Islamic veil in the community of Orange and especially our public establishments,” wrote the mayor. “It is not the responsibility of France to adapt to the veil… It is the responsibility of adherents to these religious traditions to adapt to France, to the Republic, to the French laws and customs,” he continued.
