Ban on the abaya at school: the Council of State urgently contacted by Action Droits des Musulmans (ADM)

In a France that is going down the drain in many vital sectors, the start of the school year is coming with fanfare for the Macron government… Thanks to what? On the subject of diversion par excellence, the one who has the art of hiding in its long folds all the others, but also the hypocrisy of the high spheres and its corollary, the State Islamophobia which does not speak its name: the Ban on the abaya at school!

An abaya which comes at the right time to raise the specter of “communitarianism and Islamic entryism” just before the doors of the Republican School are opened wide, deeply undermined by many evils, much more real and crucial.

But it is only for the very marginal long Islamic dress that Emmanuel Macron and his henchmen are suddenly banging their fists on the table! The oligarch of the Elysée will be “intractable”he … not “will let nothing pass”he assured Friday without batting an eyelid, using the hackneyed strategy, but still as pernicious, of the stigmatization of Muslims that one of his predecessors would not deny: Nicolas Sarkozy, the white-collar delinquent and promoter, of sad memory, of the karcherization of the suburbs…

It was in all haste, just before the time came to go back to school, that The association Action Droits des Musulmans (ADM) has petitioned the Council of State to suspend the ban on the abaya, on the grounds that it is likely to createethnic profiling.

For the plaintiffs, this decision “ violates the rights of the child, because it mainly targets children presumed to be Muslim, thus creating a risk of ethnic profiling at school. VSThis restriction of the abaya risks further stigmatizing Muslims and undermining their fundamental social, cultural and educational rights », explained Messrs William Bourdon and Vincent Brengarth.

In practice, these measures will lead school staff to unfairly target young girls based on their ethnic, Arab or African origins”. Such targeting “ is counterproductive and could lead to the exclusion of young girls from the education system,” considers the appeal.

The students concerned will be prohibited from wearing “allowing them to express their attachment to a culture or region” geographical. “However, such an attitude in no way undermines secularism”add the plaintiffs.

The plaintiffs therefore fear that “ This ban encourages National Education staff to require students to disclose their religious beliefs” For determine the religious nature or not of their outfit. Which would constitute “ a serious and manifestly illegal violation of students’ right to respect for private life. This unjustified interference in the exercise of Muslim worship is a serious and manifestly illegal attack on freedom of worship.”alerts the appeal.
