France denies citizenship to Moroccan man over burka

A Moroccan immigrant has been denied French citizenship after admitting that he forced his wife to wear a burka, French officials announced this week: “This individual imposes the full veil upon his wife, does not allow her the freedom to go and come as she pleases and bans her from going out with her face unveiled, and rejects the principles of secularism and equality between man and woman,” Immigration Minister Eric Besson was quoted as saying Wednesday.
