After the Bastille Day tragedy on 14th July 2016 in Nice that killed 86 people, around 30 municipalities in France decided to implement an anti-burkini policy. This policy was adopted in order to maintain regional security, as well as an act of consistency towards the French la¯cit©. However, on 24th August 2016, the French Court demanded the policy to be suspended. The burkini ban wasn't the first time for the French Government to ever ban any ostentatious religious symbols. On 2004, the ban on headscarves in public schools was approved, along with the 2010 ban on burqas. Suspension of the burkini ban in 2016 has shown an inconsistency by the French Government towards ostentatious religious symbols. In the end of this article, it is indicated that the change of attitude towards an ostentatious religious symbol was necessaary to protect the French Muslim citizens and to prevent further acts of extremism.
