France has banned Muslim women from wearing full  face veil.Today the law is put in effect and several emerges have been released depicting the type of veils that are not allowed.Generally the ban seems to be applicable (if the veil is worn)  mainly in public because according to the police guidelines in the implementetion of the law,victims will not be forced to remove veils and that the ban does not apply (if worn) inside private cars.

So far, those  violating the law will be fined up to  £132 (150 euros). Early reports shows police have already arrested 59 women in the exercise of enforcing the law.On the other hand Muslim leaders have said they support neither the veil nor the law banning it. (????!!!)
