Syria bans the burka and niqab in universities

(MAIL ONLINE) — Syria has banned face-covering Islamic veils from the country’s universities.

The surprise move comes as similar moves in Europe — including controversial calls in Britain for a ban on burkas — have sparked cries of discrimination against Muslims.

The crackdown was ordered by the secular government in Damascus amid fears of increasing Islamic extremism among young Muslim students.
