Scots Muslim writer who lives under fatwa calls for burka ban

A SCOTTISH Muslim writer who has received death threats for repeatedly criticising Islamic doctrine wants women to be banned from wearing the “oppressive” burqa.

Paigham Mustafa, who claims to be living under a fatwa issued in 2001 by Glasgow imams after he published articles questioning mosque teachings, made the controversial comments after Austria became the latest European country to prohibit face veils in public.
