Origin of the burqa!!!
It would be good to remind this to the current bearers of burqa, maybe they vêtiraient otherwise.
The burkha comes from the cult of astarte in ancient Mesopotamia.
To honor the goddess of physical love, all women without exception were forced into prostitution once a year in the woods surrounding the sacred temples of the goddess.
Not to be recognized, women of high society took the habit of hiding completely.
And don't forget this: Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, aka, 1St President of turkey, from 1923 to 1938, had found the right trick to nail the beak to the fundamentalists of the time.
He had put an end to the port of the burkha, making a simple act, with immediate effect, all Turkish women have the right to dress as they wish.
However, all prostitutes must wear the burqa.
The very next day, you couldn't see more burqa in turkey.
And it is still in force...! !!
