China bans wearing burqa in biggest Muslim city - CNN.com
Beijing (CNN)Legislators in China's far-western Xinjiang province have passed a law to prohibit residents from wearing burqas in public, state media reported, in a continued campaign against what authorities view as religious extremism.
The new ban in Urumqi was approved by local legislators last month, and given the greenlight by the regional legislature at the weekend.
Is China ahead of the curve here? Breaking new ground? Or setting themselves up for more hatred and attacks?
