French town shuts down public pools over burkini ban protest

Authorities in Grenoble, France, have shut down the city’s two municipal swimming pools after Muslim women went swimming in burkinis. The women went in twice at the initiative of a rights group to challenge a city ban on the full-body swimwear. According to officials, the lifeguards at the pools asked for the shutdown because ’they can’t do that when they have to worry about the crowds’.

well the rules are clear and you have to adhere to them, I am fairly sure if a man/woman tried to skinny dip they would be removed too. There is modest swimwear and swimming caps already that would be acceptable. I am sure that they can still follow religious guidelines without intimidating others.
