UNP MP Ashu Marasinghe today presented a private member motion to parliament to ban burqa in Sri Lanka.

While mentioning that the burqa is not a traditional attire of Muslim women, the MP said it is being used by males in the international terrorism for terror activities.

He said even Muslim political leaders admitted that burqa was not a traditional attire of Muslims. 

“I propose that it should be brought to notice the ban of burqa considering the national security of the country,” the MP added. 

There are notices in some public places asking the wearers to remove the burqa prior to entering such places.
