Entrepreneurs which are engaged in retail trade and tailoring received notification from the Ministry of the Interior of Morocco with request to stop the production and sale of the veil/burka.

They have been further instructed to get rid of their burqa stock or convert it within 48 hours, or risk confiscation of all goods.

Representatives of the Interior Ministry visited markets to inform both sellers and tailors to stop the production and sale of the burqa and hand-deliver the written notices.

A picture currently being circulated on social media platforms, shows a copy of the notice that was sent by El Basha, a representative of the Interior Ministry, saying “following the observations of the authorities, we notice that you sell burqas – so, we are calling on you to get rid of the products of this outfit within 48 hours and to refrain from selling it in the future.”

 “We have taken measures to completely ban the import, manufacture and marketing of this garment in all cities and towns in the kingdom,” a senior official at the Ministry of Interior was quoted by Moroccan news outlet Le360 as saying.
