In Malta, wearing a burqa while driving is 'not illegal' - police
by Neil Camilleri
Driving around wearing full-face Islamic headwear might raise suspicions and safety concerns but the practice is not illegal, this paper has learnt.
The Malta Independent sent questions to the police force after a photo showing a woman wearing a niqab (incorrectly described as a burqa) went viral on Facebook.
The picture drew many comments and, while some arguments were based on a dislike towards the Islamic culture, others were more concerned about the safety issues related to the practice.
