Paul Nuttall

We were going to launch the whole post-Brexit Ukip rebrand at autumn party conference after a consultation in the summer.feedback

Jens Spahn

I don't want to encounter a burka in this country. In that sense I am burkaphobic.feedback

Angela Merkel

In my view, a fully veiled woman has almost no chance of integrating successfully in German society.feedback

Angela Merkel

German law takes precedence over Sharia. The full-face veil is not acceptable in our country. It should be banned, wherever it is legally possible.feedback

Thomas De Maiziere

We all reject the full veil – not only the burka but also other types of full veil that only leave the eyes visible. They have no place in our society.feedback

Manuel Valls

She has a naked breast because she is figuratively feeding the people. She is not veiled, she is free. That's the republic and that's who we are.feedback

Rupert Colville - United Nations

It is frankly a stupid reaction to what we are having, facing, in terms of terrorist attacks. It does nothing to increase security, it does nothing to improve public order, if anything, it stimulates friction, and therefore undermines public order. If anything, it is having a counterproductive effect.feedback

Alain Juppé

Let's unite, rather than divide, unite rather than exclude or stigmatise, unite rather than indulge in one-upmanship.feedback

John Dalhuisen - Amnesty International

By overturning a discriminatory ban that is fueled by and is fueling prejudice and intolerance, today's decision has drawn an important line in the sand. French authorities must now drop the pretence that these measures do anything to protect the rights of women. Rather, invasive and discriminatory measures such as these restrict women's choices and are an assault on their freedoms of expression, religion and right to non-discrimination.feedback

Marisol Touraine

To pretend that swimming veiled or bathing on a beach dressed is in itself threatening to public order and the values of the Republic is to forget that those (secular) values are meant to allow each person to safeguard their identity.feedback

Manuel Valls

We have to wage a determined fight against radical Islam, against these religious symbols which are filtering into public spaces. For me the burkini is a symbol of the enslavement of women.feedback

Sadiq Khan

I'm quite firm on this. I don't think anyone should tell women what they can and can't wear. Full stop. It's as simple as that. I don't think it's right. I'm not saying we're perfect yet, but one of the joys of London is that we don't simply tolerate difference, we respect it, we embrace it, and we celebrate it.feedback

Anouar Kbibech

This is creating emotion and anxiety among Muslims in France and beyond.feedback

Feiza Ben Mohamed

It's ridiculous, because I see people on the beach who are totally naked. I can't see why we can't dress.feedback

Herve Lavisse

It raises hatred and has created a war within the population and that is abominable. It means in France we make a distinction between who is a Salafist and who is not.feedback

Feiza Ben Mohamed

The only outfit that is prohibited is the burka that conceals the face. That is not the case here. Today girls who swim in a burkina are hiding the same parts of their body as those who wear a hijab. So Muslim women are being stigmatized and excluded from the beaches and swimming areas.feedback

Marina Catena

There are many. But I think the loveliest was these young Lebanese girls, in Al-Bazzuria, a small village in southern Lebanon, full of very bright flowers. These girls came over to me and told me that they wanted to become UN peacekeepers. I lent them my blue helmet, they tried it on, the UN blue helmet. So, I think that our role as women, when we are in these countries, is also to make it possible for people to understand that there is another world, another life, that exists. Which they can reach, gradually. It's a gradual process to move from a burka to a uniform.feedback

Denis Ducarme

We think in terms of security it is completely unacceptable to see a certain number of masked figures in the street who are unidentifiable. That is the first point. The second thing is we believe there has to be equality between men and women.feedback

Kenza Dryder

On 11th of April I will continue my life as a Frenchwoman who wears a full veil. I will continue to go out in public places, and in private, wherever I want. I won't take off my niqab whatever the circumstances.feedback

Daniel Guillaume

The rules in French swimming pools, public and private, prohibit boxer shorts, tee-shirts, shorts and bermudas, and this lady unfortunately came fully-dressed.feedback

Marvi Sirmed

How could you get power from a symbol that is so humiliating and demeaning to women's power? Projecting a symbol that is so closely associated with the submission of women and you are now just reimagining and reimaging the burka, the symbol of suppression, as a symbol of resistance.feedback
