“The UN Human Rights Committee said Tuesday that France's ban on the niqab was a violation of human rights, and it called on the government to review the legislation.
France had failed to make the case for its ban, the committee said, giving Paris 180 days to report back to say what actions it had taken. The panel's findings are not legally binding but could influence French courts.
"In particular, the Committee was not persuaded by France's claim that a ban on face covering was necessary and proportionate from a security standpoint or for attaining the goal of 'living together' in society," it said.”
Guess the UN isn’t gonna turn on religion anytime soon 🙄
