    Europe’s most senior rabbi has issued an impassioned defence of the right of Muslim women to wear a burka in public.

    Pinchas Goldschmidt, the president of the Conference of European Rabbis, said that a European Court of Human Rights ruling upholding France’s ban on veils “crossed a red line” for religious freedom.
    In an article for Telegraph.co.uk he said that he was “deeply suspicious” of claims that the prohibition on wearing a burka or a niqab in public was designed to promote relations between communities.
    The orthodox rabbi warned that religious communities across Europe were feeling increasingly “disaffected and marginalised”, suggesting that the ban should be of concern to people of all faiths.
