PAZARDZHIK, Bulgaria – European City bans the burqa

A Bulgarian city has pre-empted any potential action by the national government and instituted a French-style ‘burqa ban’, forbidding the traditional Muslim garment. Pazardzhik, population 70,000 was founded in the 15th century and was a regional administration centre during the Ottoman empire.

The move is seen by Austrian paper Kronen Zeitung as a pre-emptive move in a nation on the front line of the migrant crisis and where one tenth of citizens are ethnic Turks.
