    Veil for Women!

    In France, burqa (veil) is banned on women to wear in public places. This law has been passed by the French Assembly with 335 votes and 1 in negative. Interpretation of this law corroborated the fact that if any women found in burqa (veil) would be penalised 150 Euro and at the same time if men found guilty to force their women to wear veil they would also be convicted under the law.

    This imposition of law would create difficulties for the muslims in France at widespread, who are exercising their culture freely before this codification in the law. These events followed by 9/11 are making lives of muslims difficult in European countries. But they have to follow multicultureism to survive with sagacity in these non-muslim population dominated countries.

    ThisThe imposition of this law would creates many difficulties for the muslims in France at widespread, who awere exercising their culture freely before this codification in the law was enacted. These events followed by other restrictions resulting from the '9/11' attacks are making the lives of muslims difficult in European countries. But they have to follow multicultureism to survive with sagacity in these non-muslim population dominated countries.

    I thought the burqa was the whole body covering, and the hajib was the headscarf?

    (This is a language question, I think - you want people to have the right picture in their mind.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Yes You are right. Burqa covers whole body whereas Hijab covers only face.
