​Morocco bans the production and sale of the burka

The production and sale of burkas, the loose garment for women that leaves only the eyes exposed, is banned in Morocco. The ban came from the Ministry of the Interior and requires all merchants and producers, tailors and clothing stores to cease immediately the production and sale of this characteristic and very contentious garment. Those who do not respect the ban risk the confiscation of their goods and the closure of their business. The order affects solely producers and retailers. For the time being, wearing this garment is not forbidden.
