Burqa ban: Sri Lanka bars Muslim women from wearing face veils after Easter bombing attacks

Almost a week after a series of bomb blasts ripped through three Sri Lankan cities, government authorities on Sunday ordered a complete prohibition on all types of face covers including burqas.

Emergency law will take effect eight days after more than 250 killed in series of blasts

Muslim women have been banned from wearing face veils under an emergency law passed by Sri Lanka's president, days after more than 250 people were killed in series of bombings in the country's capital Colombo.

Maithripala Sirisena's office said any garment or item which obstructs the identification of a persons face would be barred.

The move follows recent cabinet discussions on face coverings. The government had said it would delay a decision until talks with Islamic clerics could be held, on the advice of prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.
