Prologue: French law bans people from covering their face in public; a violation can result in a €150 fine; authorities say full veils are a symbol of repression and stand against France's secular values. On 22 Sep 2011, Miss Ahmas, 32, was ordered to pay a 120-euro (£104) fine, while Miss Nait Ali, 36, was fined 80 euros (£70) for violating the ban. The women were arrested when they brought a birthday cake for mayor and MP Jean-Francois Copé, who pushed Europe's first anti-burqa law through parliament. To the French authorities, these women perhaps wanted to say “Lakum deenukum waliya deeni. Fines cannot deter us from following our deen (way of life)”.
An emphatic message from the fined French women perhaps was, “Harder you try to force us away from our way of life, closer we would get to it, because your chastisement acts as a reminder to us of what the deen of our role-models was.”
