France also banned the wearing of Islamic Hijabs for girls in schools
In an interview with the TF1 TV channel, the Minister of Education of France claimed that the wearing of the Islamic Hijab by Muslim girls violates the secular laws of France, and announced that it will not be possible for Muslim girls to wear the Islamic Hijab in school from the new academic season.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): He added in this interview: "When you enter a classroom, you should not be able to recognize the religion of the students just by looking at them."
This action takes place after months of debate between different factions in France, during these debates, the right and extreme right factions pushed for this ban, but the left factions believed that this ban violates civil liberties.
According to the law that was approved in March 2004 in France, it was forbidden to wear clothes that show the religious affiliation of students in French schools, and with the approval of this law, Muslim girls were prohibited from wearing headscarves in schools in this country, but they were allowed to wear Islamic robes.
According to IRNA, the issue of Muslim women's hijab is one of the most important challenges faced by Muslims in Western societies. On March 15, 2006, then French President Jacques Chirac passed a law banning any specific religious symbols in public schools. 
Earlier in 2019, the representatives of the French Senate passed a bill that prohibits mothers wearing the hijab from accompanying their children in some outside school activities.
This bill was presented by a group of representatives of the right-wing Republican Party and was approved with 163 votes in favor against 114 votes against and 40 abstentions.
According to this law, mothers of students in French public schools can only accompany their children in extracurricular activities outside of educational institutions if they do not wear any religious signs, including wearing a hijab.
France is one of the European countries that has the largest Muslim population.
The last law that was passed (before the announcement of the ban on wearing the Islamic robe) regarding the hijab in this country, dates back to 2010 and the presidency of Nicolas Sarkozy, according to which it was announced that it was forbidden for women to wear a full veil.
France, which is known as the cradle of freedom, is a country where veiling is apparently a crime. Muslims living in France have tasted the restrictions and religious pressure on Muslim minorities.
According to French law, people should not use signs that show they are leaning towards a particular religion.
The controversial ban on the use of hijab has sparked many debates between supporters and opponents of this law.

Proponents of this law claim that this ban protects the country from extremism, and its opponents say that the purpose behind this law is to spread the feeling of Islamophobia and create hostility against Muslims in the country.
