Morocco has banned the sale, production and import of the burka apparently for security reasons, local media reported on Tuesday.

Letters announcing the ban were sent out on Monday, giving businesses 48 hours to get rid of their stock, the reports stated.

There was no official announcement from the government, but unnamed officials told outlets the decision was made due to “security concerns”.

A high-ranking interior ministry official confirmed the ban to the Le360 news site, adding that “bandits have repeatedly used this garment to perpetrate their crimes”.

The burka, which covers the entire face and body, is not widely worn in Morocco, with most women favoring the hijab, which does not shroud the face.

Women in Salafist circles, and in more conservative regions in the north, are more likely to wear the niqab, which leaves the area around the eyes uncovered.

The decision has split opinion in the North African kingdom, led by King Mohammed VI, who favors a moderate version of Islam.

Hammad Kabbaj, a preacher barred from standing in parliamentary elections in October over his alleged ties to “extremism”, denounced the ban as “unacceptable”, mocking the “Morocco of freedom and human rights” which “considers the wearing of the Western swimsuit on the beaches an untouchable right”.

Meanwhile. the Northern Moroccan National Observatory for Human Development said it considered the measure an “arbitrary decision that is an indirect violation of women’s freedom of expression and wearing what reflects their identities or their religious, political or social beliefs”.

But Nouzha Skalli, a former family and social development minister, welcomed the ban as “an important step in the fight against religious extremism”.
