Across Europe racism is becoming the law for Muslim women

“The idea that white politicians should be the ones to ‘save’ Muslim women from oppression is itself racist. It also will make it more difficult for Muslim women who want to stand up for women’s rights within their own communities, if all Muslims feel they are subject to racist attack from outside. What women wear is not and should never be a matter for politicians to decide. It should be for women themselves to decide.”
