German swimming pool bans the BURQINI

A public swimming pool in Germany has banned Muslim women from wearing the ‘burqini’ after complaints from non-Islamic bathers.

Only one woman wore the total-body swimsuit – complete with head covering – during an all-female swim day at the baths in Neutraubling near Regensburg last week.

But the sight so offended other swimmers that town officials decided to post the ban on all burqinis being worn in future.
