The Islamic headscarf has become one of the most hotly disputed items of clothing in Europe. The French ban on headscarves in state schools comes into effect on 2 September, and politicians in Germany and Belgium want similar laws.

BBC News Online asked eight commentators for their views on imposing a ban on the headscarf.

Anna, Tehran, Iran

I really cannot understand what the fuss is about. Why is it always considered ok to wear less, but if someone likes to cover everyone becomes alarmed? After all this upheaval, one really starts to suspect that Western culture is indeed exploiting women as sex symbols, and not being allowed to do so by a small minority is perceived as a major threat?

Eliseo Mercado,OMI, Rome, Italy

I cannot see any sense in the prohibition or ban on the Muslim headscarves. Is secularism the NORM, ideology and the "religion" of modern France or EU? Any one who does NOT conform to its "religion" of "laicite" or is it "laicism" has to be proscribed! Why? Is this not another form of fanatical intolerance in the guise of the so called secularism!

I hate head scarves.

It's frankly ridiculous. I just find it hilarious that Allah somehow forgot to make women bald and said "just cover you hair with a scarf instead".

And personally, I'm more liable to think that a Muslim woman is going to do something suspicious than any other religious person in Europe. You let radicals operate within your religion and this is what you get...watched. And if we can't see your faces, then gtfo.
