Re: Switzerland could ban burqas in future!

Just as an aside, I was in East London over the weekend and I noticed a few, probably non-Muslim, women wearing headscarves. They were worn in a style a bit like you might see on some Muslim women, though the folding was different . . . the face was visible, but the scarf was over and around the head. The fabrics used and the different, careful folding mark this out as a new fashion. This follows on from the widespread adoption of the keffiyah as a youth fashion a few years ago.

This is slightly too new a trend for me to find any photos online of the kind of thing I mean. It's definitely a new thing though.
