In the aftermath of the worst terror attack in Sri Lanka, whose responsibility has been taken by the Islamic State, the Sri Lankan government is considering banning the burqa.
A Sri Lankan government source told a local newspaper that the authorities are considering burqa ban in consultations with Muslim community leaders. The issue has been discussed with President Maithripala Sirisena.
The newspaper quoting Sri Lankan defence source said, several female accomplices involved in Dematagoda had escaped wearing burqas.
Several firearms were recovered in Dematagoda, a suburb of Colombo in the aftermath of Sunday’s terror attack.
