“…What does the President say? It is unacceptable that some people are hiding behind a distorted view of the freedom of religion, It is a President who said this on Tuesday. But he is not ours. He is French President Jacques Chirac. Why? Because, nowadays they also tackle the issue of turban. France, the cradle of democracy, views turban as a symbol of a fundamentalist persistence. They do not want it in public places.”
