France: Reactions over Niqab and Polygamy Controversy

Lies Hebbadj is currently making  the headline news because his wife was fined for driving while wearing a niqab and because he said himself that he has three more households. His statement led him to be suspected of polygamy and therefore possiblyof French gaming welfare laws. Although  many bloggers, including Rokhaya Diallo in her blog post support Lies Hebbadj[fr],  blogger L’Arabe [fr] wrote a tongue-in-cheek note to Hebbadj: “Petite explication entre quatre yeux” (Eye-to-Eye explanation) asking him to tone “it” down  (fr).
