The origin of the burqa.


(By: “Jean” )

A little history can not hurt … It may be useful to have all  b oerkadraagsters this would also encourage you know. Maybe they would or else dress … or they are so. The boerka comes out of the Astarte-cult i the old Mesopotamië. This was the goddess of physical love to honor.

All women, without exception, had to prostitute once a year in the groves that stood around the temple of the goddess. In order not to be recognized, the women in higher grades took the habit to fully hide behind the veil of the burqa.

Also good to know is this: Mustapha Kemal Atatürk alias, one e president of Turkey from 1923 to 1938, had found a good trick to silence the gossip mouth. He ended the wearing of the burqa and replaced it by a simple law, with immediate effect: all Turkish women have the right to dress as they please. But all prostitutes are required to wear the burqa. From the next day, you saw no more burqas in the streets of Turkey.

This law is to this day still in force today! Therefore, there is very little worn burqas in Turkey. Maybe post in our communities and in all the languages ​​of the Muslims.
