Those preventive actions are too mainstream. When it comes to safety and security, it is second to none for the government to turn their blind eye on the issue. Veils should not be a major problem that could intervene with the safety and security procedures regardless of places it will be executed.
Since this issue somehow has given difficulties towards those muslim women there, French government need to revise their security standard and how the execute it without. They could implement the new procedures taken by certain countries, which to allow veils to be worn at every time, but at certain points they need to take it off, just for the moment for security clearance. Even though it sounds simple and yet not the most popular choice for the authorities, the effectiveness comes with lifetime warranty.
Sure enough most of the people would question how this could be implement EFFECTIVELY since the security procedures in public building is not as tighten as those in the airports. It sounds near to impossible for everybody. However most of the countries nowadays especially after 9/11 have split the intelligence division into two which is for domestic crimes and anti-terrorist division, the workload somehow has been reduced and simplified. These two division need to carry out intensive exercise on each and every case, identify possible threats, target as well as the motive and objective of the threats given to the public and challenge to the authorities.
The intelligence and armed forces need to understand how, why, where and when the threats could be posed, by then they could execute certain radical preventive actions without offending anybody. Just because the veils could make something vital hidden, doesn’t necessarily banning it will solve the whole problems. The action taken nowadays is too mainstream and predictable. Try to add more fun in it.
