Burkha ban suspended in Lleida
Catalunya High Court has suspended the ban on the Burkha in public places imposed by Lleida city council in October.
The verdict, passed on Tuesday, January 12, says the ban will be lifted until a decision has been made by a judge on the appeal put forward by the Muslim association Watani.
On October 8, 2010, the city council forbade the wearing of not only Burkhas but also other Muslim headgear such as the niqab and the hiyab – which only cover the wearer's hair – in any public building.
