Unbelievable stuff.. Once more the US critizes and meddles in the affairs of other countries.
The report addressed laws in France and Belgium that ban the wearing of full-face veils in public, noting that Muslim women who do so can now be stopped, questioned and fined by authorities.
Note: The commission in question is the US Commission on International Religious Freedom.
“This raises discrimination concerns,” the report said.
The review also referred to measures against religious groups characterized as “cults” and “sects,” saying France has the most extensive restrictions but also mentioning Germany, Austria and Belgium.
“One of the problems with these sorts of laws, that are singling out a particular minority religious group, is that they send a signal that some people may take justified discrimination against members of that group,” Elizabeth Cassidy, the commission’s deputy director, told AFP.
