The French Government today is aiming to pass a law which states that wearing a burka will be illegal.
There are around 2000 women who wear a burka in France.
If a women is caught wearing the garment after the law is passed, they can face a 150€ fine. However, if they are being forced to wear it by their husband for example, he could face a year in prison.
The garment is already illegal in French state schools.
