As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Sheikh on Headscarfs
Even when the BBC claim, he bans them, I can't see that in toto, I must admit.
Let's get into it again - the French forbid big religious signs in Schools. Not more but also not less. And now the whole world wants to react. The Grand Sheikh of the al-Azhar mosque in Egypt, Sayed Tantawi said, that any Muslim woman is obliged to wear a headscarf.
Which is - by the muslim theoretics I know if not wrong than at least not consens in the Muslim world. Would it be demanded too much to make it visible that there are people who think it's different? We're not talking about average people, but professors and other prominent Muslim, but however, the Sheikh also claims that a Muslim has to obey the laws.
And f also France has a law that bans the scarf then it's okay for Mulsim women to obey this law and not wearing one.
That leaves the Muslim women in France having two possibilities. Either acting by french law and not wearing a headscarf at school, or using Democracy and electing people into french government who will ban this ban again and let them wear whatever they want in their head.
To me, this is some kind of a fair solution. I do think that religious signs don't have anything to do with school, as long it's not a religious school. I think, Germany might find to a similar solution and I bet the screams will be louder because of the German "Dark Past".
Bullshit. We're not talking past here, we're talking presence, so I do hope the government won't hear too much on this voices.
