The Sri Lankan government’s statement regarding the ban on burqa and hijab came to light.
According to a foreign news agency, the Sri Lankan government said the ban on the burqa and hijab was “merely a proposal” which has not yet been approved.
Three days ago, Sri Lanka’s Minister of Public Security Sarath Veraskara called wearing the burqa extremism.
He said a document banning the wearing of the niqab had been signed across the country, which would be approved by the cabinet.
It should be noted that a plan was made to ban the wearing of burqa in Sri Lanka and more than a thousand madrassas were also announced to be closed.
Sri Lanka’s Minister of Public Security told a news conference that the burqa religion was a symbol of extremism.
The Sri Lankan minister said that in the past few women in the country wore the burqa, but now the trend has escalated to a dangerous level, a sign that extremism is on the rise in the country, which threatens national security.
The Minister of Public Security had said in a statement that there were plans to close madrassas in the country.
Minister Sarath Veraskira added that it has also decided to ban more than a thousand Islamic schools that violate the national education policy.
Sri Lanka’s Minister of Public Security had said that no one would be able to open their own school.
