Egypt is considering a law which would ban the burqa in public places in a crackdown on Islamic extremism.
The Muslim-majority nation has faced a series of extremist attacks including the shooting of six Coptic Christians by ISIS last week.
A draft law to be considered by the Egyptian parliament calls for a burqa ban in public spaces including hospitals, health clinics, schools, cinemas, theatres and museums.
Women who wore the full face veil would be punished with a fine of 1,000 Egyptian pounds, equivalent to $56 or £42, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Linda Sarsour... you need to book a flight to Egypt. The women there NEED YOUR HELP !
I guess they’ll have to move to Minnesota.
Exactly. I wish someone would tell her that to her face.
Do it here while we still can.
Good apparently we have the right people in charge of Egypt - no thanks to Obama.
Not the first country:
In Africa, bans have been imposed in Chad, Cameroon, Niger and the Republic of the Congo. Cairo University in Egypt banned the niqab for university staff, claiming it hinders communication, especially during lectures, according to a report.
Might be banned in other countries as well.
I was in Egypt for a couple days in 1979; during that time I did not see a single veil or hijab. And there were only a few among the Palestinians in Israel.
It'll be okay, the benighted muzzie a-holes can still move to Europe.
Good. Honestly, the best form of government is a secular Arab Strongman. Look at Assad’s Syria where women are respected and Christians are protected. Same thing in Saddam’s Iraq. So we shouldn’t have taken out Saddam. But hindsight is 20/20.
