Egyptian lawmakers are set to vote on banning women from wearing a full-face Islamic veil, local media reports.
Parliament is drafting a law which would prohibit women from wearing a niqab in public places and government institutions.
It follows a ban at Egypt’s premier public university in the capital Cairo, which banned lecturers from wearing the niqab in October.
Member of Parliament Amna Nosseir, also a professor of comparative jurisprudence, said the full-face veil is neither an Islamic tradition, not required in the Quran, the Independent reports.
Dr. Nosseir added that while the Quran calls for modest clothing and for women to cover their hair, the holy book of Islam does not ask women to cover their faces.
The vast majority of Egyptian Muslim women wear a form of veil that covers the hair but leaves the face uncovered.
However the number of women wearing the full niqab veil has increased dramatically in the past 10-20 years.
In the wake of the increase in niqab wearers, Egypt has imposed a series of restrictions on wearing full-face veil in public.
Egypt has made a number of reforms to put an end to Islamization since the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama regime and Clinton Foundation backed President Mohamed Morsi.
Perhaps their current leader, General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi would do America a favor by coming here and cleaning out the rat’s nest of Islamic traitors that infest Washington, DC.
