Muzaffarnagar: Terming as "undemocratic"
and against "secularism" the ban imposed on veil in France,
leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has appealed to
the government to raise the issue with the European country.

In a joint statement issued to the press, acting Vice
Chancellor of the seminary Maulana Abul Kasmi Banarsi and
Deputy Vice Chancellor Abdul Khalique Madrasi said, "The veil
is an integral part of our religion. Baning it is against the
freedom of the religion."

They said the move was "undemocratic" and against
"secularism".

They also appealed to the government to raise the
issue with the French government and ask them to withdraw
their decision.

France on April 11 became the first country in Europe
to apply a ban on the wearing of full-face coverings,
including the Islamic niqab.
