The French National Assembly on Monday ruled out a proposal by two deputies from the president’s party, Emmanuel Macron, which sought to prohibit the use of the religious veil in people under 18 years of age in public areas.

The body has considered “excessive the articles of the bill”, presented by the deputies of La República en Marcha (LREM), Aurore Berge and Jean-Baptiste Moreau.

But not only has this amendment been discarded, as ‘Le Figaro’ rescues, almost 300 proposals submitted before the debate on Macron’s controversial law on “Islamic separatism” have been rejected.

For his part, Prime Minister Jean Castex, also from Macron’s political force, has discarded the proposal and explained that they do not have the objective of attacking minors.

France already banned visible religious signs in schools in 2004 and clothing that covers the face, including burqas and niqabs, in 2010.

Macron has coined the concept of “Islamic separatism”, and has announced a bill that, among other things, aims to eradicate indoctrination within the centers and the prohibition of the arrival of imams trained abroad.

“Radical Islamism, by creating laws above those that currently exist in the country, is a danger for France because it sometimes translates into a parallel society,” President Macron has pointed out on previous occasions.
