I am a very tolerant fellow. I don't support things like public burqa bans, for example.

But, reading that article (assuming it is true):

"Special sessions have been introduced for Muslims, when all other swimmers have to conform."

That is going too far. That is unacceptable. If individuals want to wear what they like, that is up to them. But imposing this rule on others is not fair, not reasonable and not integration. It is authoritarian.
