Rabat (AFP) - Morocco has banned the production and sale of burqa full-face Muslim veils, apparently for security reasons, media reports said Tuesday.

While there was no official announcement by authorities in the North African nation, the reports said the interior ministry order would take effect this week.

"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.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

That's surprising, as I had read that Morocco was starting to become less worldly and more-Shariah-friendly.

Quote
Oussama Boutaher, a coordinator that defends Islamist prisoners, said the burqa ban amounted to "discrimination".

"This shows that we are considered second-class citizens.
Women, however, continue to be third- or fourth-class citizens in Islam, which is just fine with these morons.

Right. Depending on how rich a moslem man is. Camel, donkey, wife. But ALWAYS with the wife last in status.

I wasn't aware women had any status under Sharia.  I thought they were considered lower than whale sh*t.
