If you thought it was up to individual nations to decide what’s appropriate for their own society…think again.
The United Nations wants to call the shots around the globe. Although they’re remarkably selective and far-left in most of the causes they pursue.
The United Nations Human Rights Committee, for example, has said France’s ban on the niqab violates human rights. The niqab is a full-body Islamic veil that also hides a woman’s face.
Many argue that girls raised in Western societies who are taught to wear the niqab and hide themselves from view is the true human rights violation here. But not the UN global police.
UN committee forces France to review legislation
As reported by RAW, the UN committee issued a statement indicating that France had failed to make the case for its ban. The UN body then ordered French lawmakers to review the legislation.
‘In particular, the Committee was not persuaded by France’s claim that a ban on face covering was necessary and proportionate from a security standpoint or for attaining the goal of “living together” in society.’
The UN committee was created to oversee countries’ compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
And according to RAW, it has given France 180 days to report back to them to reveal what actions the government has taken.
We wonder if Saudi Arabia may be next on the committee’s list.
Certainly banning women from wearing bikinis or even short skirts in public is a far graver violation of human rights than banning the niqab.
