Top French court overturns Burkini ban ‘you can’t tell women what (their husbands demand them) to wear’


All signs of extremism have to be removed to tackle Islamic fascism, and burkini is just one of the domino effects originating from extremist male ownership of women. It’s bizarre that human rights groups are so opposed to these women finally becoming free from human slavery. It’s purely out of habit that they wear these garbs like a long-term prisoner who willingly returns to prison even after release. Society has truly fallen to twisted values of democracy if the general public accepts blatant signs of human slavery as a ‘right’ to exist parallel with human freedom. The entire presence of the burkas, niqabs, burkinis is offensive, obnoxious and intrusive and has nothing whatsoever to do with choice or freedom.

Top French court overturns Burkini ban saying ‘you can’t tell women what to wear’ – but one mayor declares he will ignore the ruling 

  • A French court has decided to overturn the controversial burkini ban 
  • 30 French towns announced bans on the burkini mostly on the south east
  • The Human Rights League took legal action to overturn the burkini ban 
  • Since its introduction, women wearing burkinis have been fined €38 

The controversial burkini ban has been overturned by France’s highest administrative court although one mayor insists he will ignore the ruling.

In a ruling, the court said the ban on the full-body burkini swimsuits were ‘seriously, and clearly illegal’.

Ange-Pierre Vivoni, mayor of the Corsican town of Sisco, claimed burkinis had sparked clashes between Muslim bathers and locals. He said: ‘Here the tension is very, very, very strong and I won’t withdraw it.’

On Tuesday these photographs of four French police officers closing in on a woman who was wearing a headscarf on the Promenade des Anglais beach in Nice caused controversy

The woman, who was wearing a traditional headscarf and matching top, was spoken to by the officers, who have been tasked with implementing the ban.

The ruling will likely to set a precedent for around 30 French towns which have banned the burkini, mostly along the southeast coast.

A court in the Riviera resort of Nice upheld the Villeneuve-Loubet ban this week.

The court said in a statement the decree to ban burkinis in Villeneuve-Loubet was ‘seriously, and clearly illegally, breached the fundamental freedoms to come and go, the freedom of beliefs and individual freedom’.

Under the French legal system, temporary decisions can be handed down before the court takes more time to prepare a judgement on the underlying legality of the case.

Several women who have already been fined by police for wearing burkinis should be able to challenge the decision as a result of today’s ruling.

A tribunal in the Riviera city had on Monday ruled a burkini ban in the nearby town of Villeneuve-Loubet was ‘necessary, appropriate and proportionate’ to prevent public disorder.

But the Council of State’s verdict will now provide a legal precedent for France.

Patrice Spinosi, for the Human Rights League, said mayors in all towns which had imposed the ban should now be prepared to refund women who had been fined, and scrap their criminal records immediately.

Amnesty International meanwhile welcomed the decision, with spokesman John Dalhuisen saying: ‘By overturning a discriminatory ban that is fuelled by and is fuelling prejudice and intolerance, today’s decision has drawn an important line in the sand.’

Despite ministry of justice sources in Paris insisting that the case’s ruling would apply immediately across all resorts, some mayors said they would not lift the ban.

Nicolas Sarkozy, the former French president, on Thursday called for a full ban, as he warned that immigrants, minorities and the Left were threatening to destroy French identity.

In the first big speech of his campaign to win back the office he lost in 2012, Mr Sarkozy stole many ideas of the far-Right Front National, promising to reclaim France ‘for the French’.

‘I refuse to let the burkini impose itself at French beaches and swimming pools,’ he said, linking the garment to the July attack in Nice in which an Islamic State linked lorry driver killed 85 people.

But the groups who brought today’s appeal pointed to the fact that 30 Muslims were among the dead in Nice, and that the attack had absolutely nothing to do with swimwear whatsoever.

Instead they said the ban was being used by racists to spread collective guilt among five million plus French Muslims, many of whom have strong links to former French colonies.

As the authorities in resorts such as Nice and Cannes have proved, they argued, the ban was being used to discriminate against Muslim women, no matter what they were wearing.

In 2010, France became the first European country to ban the Islamic veil in public places, six years after outlawing the headscarf and other conspicuous religious symbols in state schools.

Security analysts have warned that the dispute will fuel jihadist propaganda groups like Isis, as they attempt to portray France and other Western countries as being at war with Muslims.

Manuel Valls, the French Prime Minister, said he was not in favour of nationwide legislation but appeared to support the law in principle by claiming the burkini was ‘based on the enslavement of women.’

President Francois Hollande said on Thursday that life in France ‘supposes that everyone sticks to the rules and that there is neither provocation nor stigmatisation’.

The court’s ruling will be watched closely abroad as well.

John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s Europe director, said the French justice system should overturn ‘a discriminatory ban that is fuelled by and is fuelling prejudice and intolerance’.

‘French authorities should drop the pretence that these measures do anything to protect the rights of women,’ he said.

Anger over the issue was further inflamed this week when photographs showed police surrounding a woman in a headscarf on a beach in Nice as she removed a long-sleeved top.

  1. It is amazing how otherwise rational people lose all reasoning capacity when confronted with islam.
    What is even more amazing is how members of human rights groups, official and unofficial, are so gullible that they are taken in by the followers of anti-rights islam, even to the extent of supporting them!

    islam replaces knowledge with ignorance
    islam replaces reason with superstition
    islam replaces truth with lies
    islam replaces equality with subordination
