France was the first European Country that banned veils (Covering of face) in public places. Since 1st April 2011, it was illegal to wear a face veil or other masks in public places. Now, France has launched a new guideline which is encouraging people to wear face masks.
And recently, in a famous fashion show, The Paris Fashion Week, the models were seen different sorts of face masks that were identical to the ones Muslim women wear all around the world. The fashion brand on Paris Fashion Week showcased a number of outfits that have face masks, what Muslims call Niqaab, as the coronavirus continues to spread all across the world. A large variety of face masks were showcased that included Knit pieces as well as gingham prints, fully covering the faces of the models on the runway.
It was indeed surprising to see that in France, where the covering of the face was considered an illegal act, and now they’re forcing their locals to cover their faces. France was the first-ever country to ban face veil and Muslims all around the world condemned this decision back in 2011, calling it a way to oppress Muslims living in France.
People all around the world tweeted about it!
