Québec Solidaire MNA Eve Torres said Notre Dame Fire Was “Divine Intervention”: The ban had provoked the “wrath” of Allah and “here is the result!”
She wrote a Facebook post in which she said that the Notre Dame fire was “divine intervention” in response to France banning the Islamic veil.
The 2010 French law banning full-face coverings in public places, including the niqab & burka.
Under the ban no one, regardless of whether they are French nationals or foreigners, is allowed to leave their home with the veil on.
Failure to remove it in public places is punishable with a fine of 150 euros ($172), as well as an instructive course on citizenship.
In October 2018 the UN Human Rights Committee criticised France's so-called burqa ban, saying the law "violated" the rights of two women who were fined for wearing full-face veils in public.
“The decisions are not directed against the notion of secularity, nor are they an endorsement of a custom which many on the committee, including myself, regard as a form of oppression of women,” committee chair Yuval Shany said.
“Rather, the decisions represented the position of the committee that a general criminal ban did not allow for a reasonable balance between public interests and individual rights.”
