The news of French police forcing a Muslim woman to strip following the burkini ban recently went viral as social media rebuked the act.
Recently, the Muslim woman was fined on a beach in Nice, France as part of a controversial ban on burkini in the wake of recent terror attacks in the country.
Masses took to social media, deeming the deplorable act as a bigoted response by the French authorities.
Forcing a woman to remove her cover is as bad as forcing a
woman into a cover: In both cases there is no choice: https://t.co/v6Ca60KJCh

Sadistic people. How can ‘enforcing’, ‘banning’ be called liberty, freedom, secularism. What nonsense, France? https://t.co/Dul4I0CUX4

Utter disgrace France! What a shameful thing to do. This can’t be liberalism or secularism. https://t.co/yvH28L6iTf

Now France has its own Mutaween, parading around and deciding
what women can and cannot wear in public. https://t.co/ijYNeJxCrF

Is this laïcité? Is this what being liberal looks like? Men forcing women to take clothes off? https://t.co/NOT4IcvuF5
