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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

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.
