Weeks After Burkini Ban, French Police Made Woman Remove Hers On A Nice Beach & Fined Her



- August 26, 2016

Nice, a southern town in France, and 14 others recently banned the burkini from their beaches after the country was hit by a spade of terrorist attacks. Pictures of a woman lying on the beach in a burkini being asked to remove it by the French Police have emerged on social media and are adding fuel to the fire that was sparked when the ban was introduced.

Weeks After Burkini Ban, French Police Made Woman Remove Hers On A Nice Beach & Fined Her

The sun appears to be glaring in the picture and the woman is sunbathing, it seems, in a curled position and appears completely harmless when the police approached her and not only does it ask her to remove a part of her beachwear outfit but also fined her. The fine for wearing a burkini publicly is €38. This has, of course, led to mixed reactions on social media – some say that banning the burkini is enforcing what women can/cannot wear, while others say that the burkini does not in fact, comply with the French values of liberty, equality and fraternity.

The lady is seen removing the long sleeves shirt at the police’s order and resumes her activity of sunbathing. Ironically the French government’s minister for women’s rights, Laurence Rossignol, defended the burkini ban and said, “The burkini is not some new line of swimwear, it is the beach version of the burqa and it has the same logic: hide women’s bodies in order to better control them.” Isn’t the ban also “controlling” what women should wear by banning a swimming attire altogether?

An artist in the UK expressed her discontent about the ban through art and shared it on Twitter:

A burkini is a two piece swimsuit, similar to a wet-suit, is usually worn by Muslim women and includes a full-sleeves shirt, ankle-length leggings and a headpiece as well. Interestingly, the BBC reported that burkini sales are up by 200% since the ban.


Here’s what some Twitter users had to say:
