My wife and I are devout Muslims too who faced difficulties for just being so. But as a foreigner living in Turkey, I'm really wondering your opinion about this issue. Do you think its nonsense to prevent girls wearing scarves from going to schools or do you believe that the secular state have to act in this way to protect other citizens who are not so religious?

Thanks for the note. As an outsider, I really dont know what to think. From an American point of view, people ought to wear whatever they want in public. I realize there are other factors for natives to consider. What do you think?
