Sri Lanka : Ban on mask in public places

Cabinet Spokesperson and Information Minister Kehlia Rambukwela said that the cabinet has decided to ban all types of mask in public places.

Colombo: The Sri Lankan cabinet on Tuesday approved a proposal to ban all types of face masks in public places, citing it as a threat to national security. However, wearing masks is allowed to deal with Covid-19. He said, “All types of mask are a threat to national security.” In this way, all kinds of burqa and niqab will be included in it.

All types of mask were banned

The move comes at a time when Public Safety Minister Sarat Veerasekara signed a document in March last asking for cabinet approval to ban the burqa.
The burqa is used by Muslim women to cover the face and body. Cabinet Spokesperson and Information Minister Kehlia Rambukwela said that the cabinet has decided to ban all types of mask in public places.He made no mention of the burqa. He said, “All types of mask are a threat to national security.” In this way, all kinds of burqa and niqab will be included in it. This proposal will now have to be approved by Parliament to make a law.

Pakistan expresses opposition

Last month, Pakistan’s High Commissioner in Sri Lanka, Saad Khattak, criticized the proposal to ban the wearing of burqa in the country, saying that such ‘divisive steps’ in the name of security would not only hurt the sentiments of Muslims but also the minorities in the island nation. Extensive apprehensions about fundamental human rights will also get a boost.Meanwhile, Veerasekara wrote in a Facebook post that the cabinet has approved the proposal to ban all types of niqab, including the burqa.

After the terror attacks in Sri Lanka,Srilankan government is acting against any kind of Suspicious activities that could lead a terrorist attack.
