Presidential Commission has backed the hammock ban over wearing Head Scarf by Muslim female students in educational institutions in the name of 'sustenance of Secular identity of France'. Head Scarf is already forbidden in public sector.

Few days back President Chirac told a group of high school students that wearing a veil in France is seen as "a sort of aggression."

Muslims represent 7 percent of France's total 60 million population, while the country's Jewish community is about 1 percent of the population --Both Western Europe's largest.

Do you think such bans in France would strengthen or weaken the secularism?

What do you think about this interposing on Muslim students' wearing Head Scarf in France?

How do you see the French Presidentís remarks over this issue?

Is there any surety Christian and Jew minorities will not be banned from wearing Skullcaps and Crosses in future?
