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.

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.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

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.
