Kuwait wants u-turn on France hijab ban

Nasir

Stephan,

A typically two faced comment. When the 'West' was fighting the Soviets, then the hysterical claim was that they invaded other contries and their puppet governments invited them in. Now that you want to go in and control the place you say that your puppet government is perfectly legitimate. P.s. please read up on how legitimate the government of Mali actually is.

People are getting sick of the endless lies that the neo-colonialist keep regurgitating to get what they want. At least be a man and admit the truth.

there is an old saying; when in Rome do as the Romans do......respect the laws of the country you are in; or go home o where you may live in peace and harmony amongst your own kind.

@Stephan, it is much better to focus on evil France than on the dysfunctional political system they have in Kuwait
To be fair politicians all over the world do that, there is always good to have scapegoats and if they are foreigners the better. Nothing like the good, old, rally to the flag, specially in times of crises. Be it the Falklands/Malvines, or the Citi based speculators, or the evil "Imperio" and its allies... Grandstanding is cheap most of the time
@HD_dxb, yes you are right about the extent of the ban. About the hijab, there is an old joke: All those more pious than me are zealots, all those less pious than me are atheists

I think Kuwait should be focusing on finding a solution to end the suffering of the tens of thousands of bedoons (the stateless) who has been living for decades on its soil, rather than worrying about the rights of a handfull Muslim women wearing Niqab in France !!!!

HD_dxb

france doesnt have a hijab ban, they have a niqab ban. No where in our religion does it say our women need to have their faces covered. Lets worry about all the issues we have in our own countries instead of telling people how they should run their own.

Stephan

RAH:
your point number 2: The Republic of Mali asked the help of France and France went there to help the people of Mali. We are not meddling with Mali.

France has no lessons of Freddom to receive from a country like Kuwait! and as HD_dxb said the ban is on niqab not hijab!!!!

RAH

"Lets worry about all the issues we have in our own countries instead of telling people how they should run their own."

1. France is busy telling the world what is wrong with them, so it is only fair that the world tells is back when civil liberties are infringed upon

2. France is busy meddling with Mali at the moment so why not have other countries meddle with France?

They meddle outside of their borders, then it's just fair others would meddle into their affairs.
