2018-11-08 18:57
Egypt is considering a ban on the burqa according to reports. The ban was proposed as part of a crackdown on extremism. The Muslim-majority nation faces almost daily terrorist attacks. Male and female terrorists have used face-coverings to hide their identities. The ban has been proposed in a draft bill set before parliament. Several European countries have banned full face-coverings. A ban in Denmark came into effect in 2018.
