When 24-year old Nassim Mimoune saw the hospital nurse in Marseilles removing the veil of his wife during childbirth, he flew into a rage, smashed his way into the operation theater and punched the nurse on the nose. He was a Muslim and felt it improper that the veil (burqa) of his come off in public.

However, the judged did not see eye to eye with him and sent him to jail for 6-months.

While passing judgment, the judge remarked that the law of the land takes precedence over religious values.
