Algeria introduced a ban on face-covering headgear at workplaces

To maintain a proper identification of all the employees, Algeria has imposed a ban on face-covering gears such as burka and nakab at all the workplaces.

Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia in the North African country says in a statement that “any clothing that impedes public service, especially nakab, is strictly prohibited in the workplace”.

A spokesperson for the prime minister states that employees must be able to identify at workplaces across the country to avoid security-related threats.

97.9 of Algerian’s population are Muslims, according to the American Research Center Pew Research Center.
