Chad bans the burka

(N'Djamena) After a rash of suicide bombings in the country which has seen 34 people killed, the Islamic government of Chad has decided to ban Islamic inspired body coverings. So for the likes of the hijab, burka, even men's turbans, it's good night, Vienna. I wonder if the usual suspects will protest on the streets of Chad, demanding the right to cover up. Something tells me, if they do, they won't get treated as softly as they get treated in the West.
