Morocco Bans Burqas

From The Daily Mail:

‘We have taken the step of completely banning the import, manufacture and marketing of this garment in all the cities and towns of the kingdom,’ the Le360 news site quoted a high-ranking interior ministry official as saying. 

It said the measure appeared to be motivated by security concerns, ‘since bandits have repeatedly used this garment to perpetrate their crimes.’

Most women in Morocco, whose King Mohammed VI favours a moderate version of Islam, prefer the hijab headscarf that does not cover the face.
