French minister meets Muslims on burkinis issue


France’s interior minister convened Muslim leaders on Monday to discuss the issues that honour the nation’s secular values, a task given new urgency after deep divisions surfaced over burkini bans in 30 French beach towns and after terror attacks that also stigmatised Muslims.

A high court struck down the burkini bans on Friday, but the high-pitched debate that quickly seeped into France’s political sphere revealed raw tensions between the secular establishment and sectors of France’s estimated 5 million Muslims, the largest Muslim population in Western Europe.
