No more Burkhas covering face

In a first ever move by any government on the Islamic practice of women wearing a burkha and covering the face with veils, Sri Lanka government has imposed restrictions on its citizens against covering their face with veils in the country.

A statement from the President’s Media Division on Sunday said covering of the face with veils, in a manner that prevents identification of a person, will be banned from Monday under emergency regulations.
