The face-covering headgear such as masks, helmets, balaclava and niq?bs prevent clear identification. Covering of the face is against the French tradition of recognition and expression in communication. This was passed through a bill by senate of France in 2010.

every country has its laws.If a Muslim goes to another country they must respect its customs just like everyone else.France frowns on obvious signs of faith like crosses,stars of david etc feeling that it segregates people and causes ill judgement.Would you be my friend if you knew i was pagan? NO. because 87% of the world thinks that ALL pagans worship satan when in fact we just keep to ourselves and don't even believe in the devil.

For the same reason you can't wear a ski-mask, because then you can't be identified if you commit a crime. The bigger question is, why can't they accept the laws of the country that they chose to live in? And why do they have to violently riot whenever they don't get their way?
French want to be able to identify folks. That's the official reason: public safety. The other reason is French don't understand people who don't assimilate, and for the most part, Islamic immigrants don't assimilate. Assimilation is necessary for a unified society, a culture that is vibrant, and one where crime doesn't increase.
