Maybe a step too far

Photographs have emerged of armed French police confronting a woman on a beach and making her remove some of her clothing as part of a controversial ban on the burkini.
Authorities in several French towns have implemented bans on the burkini, which covers the body and head, citing concerns about religious clothing in the wake of recent terrorist killings in the country.
Does this ban include a cleric sitting fully clothed on the beach?
I can see the issue with the veil but this is maybe going a little overboard.
