    I’m a Muslim and think the burka is unnecessary. It is an exaggerated reading about covering modesty.
    It’s worse to wear it in England with it’s little sun, and with the stereotypical Muslim being dark skinned, that’s 2 extra layers to vitamin D deficiency on top of the others that affect us all.

    That said, peoples views can’t change so supplementation and indoor UVB lamp advice needs more pushing. It’s a health time bomb.
