Morocco Implementing Burqa Ban
According to UPI, in Morocco this week the government began to give notices to businesses that they must stop making and selling burqas. Government officials say the ban stems from instances in which criminals have used burqas to disguise themselves during robberies. Others however suggest that the ban of the head-to-toe garment is aimed at conservative Muslims in the country. [Thanks to Scott Mange for the lead.]
