If elected, fines will be imposed on wearing a hijab in public

Presidential candidate Marine Le Pen vows

Editorial comments

  • France is a developed and science-oriented country, however, even their elections are centred around hijab controversies with the promise of imposing a fine on wearing hijab. This is a tight slap to so-called rationalists and science believers.
  • Would any Indian leader dare to promise something like this during elections in India ?
