Reportedly, France’s education minister has said that wearing abaya, a loose-fitting, full-length robe worn by certain Muslim women, will be banned in state-run schools.

Since 19th-century legislation eliminated any traditional Catholic influence from public education, France has strictly prohibited religious signs in state-run schools and has struggled to modernise regulations to meet with a rising Muslim population.

Wearing of huge crosses, Jewish kippas, or Islamic head-scarves is not permitted in French public schools, reports say.

It is pertinent to be mentioned here that both the 2004 and 2010 bans on full face veils in public spaces infuriated a large portion of the nation’s five million-strong Muslim population.
