Khadijah Mellah started this petition to United Nations and

Recently a bill has just been passed that any young girl under the age of 18 can not wear the hijab in school and parents accompanying them on school trips also cannot wear the hijab. The niqab ban was already a step in the wrong direction however this blatant disregard and disrespect towards anyone practicing the Muslim faith.

This is a completely unacceptable policy that restricts the freedom of expression and is a demonstration of discrimination towards Muslims. This will only increase tension in the Muslim community and promote Islamophobia within the French population.

This policy discriminates against a large portion of the French population and restricts a specific group of people therefore being an act of discrimination. This should have never been debated or voted in the french parliament in the first place. The United Nations should Address this issue and apply pressure to the French government officials to abolish this policy. The UK government should also not stand complicit whilst this is going on. 

There has been little to no media coverage in the UK which is incredibly disappointing and needs to change people should be aware of what is going on France and BBC News should make this a headline.
