Iran majlis speaker Gholam Adel known as "Gholam Shire'i" in majlis Wednesday denounced the expulsion of a Muslim student from a French school for wearing a veil. Gholam Shire'i urged European countries "to confront such unfair French measures," the Iranian News Agency reported.

"The French decision to ban the Muslim veil in public schools is a blunt violation of human rights and aimed at confronting a religious minority in that country," Gholam Shire'i told mullah-run majlis.

He said Muslim women "know very well that wearing the veil does not curb their political and social activities."

France earlier this year passed a controversial law banning the provocative display of religious symbols in public schools, including Muslim veils, Jewish skullcaps and oversized crosses."
