Italian Imam Shares Photos of Nuns Wearing Garment Similar to the Burkini

Nuns Wearing Garment Similar to the Burkininewss32sfAmid the controversy following the ban of the Burkini in the French cities of Cannes and Corsica and calls to outlaw it in Belgium, social media users shared photos of nuns wearing similar garments.

The photos were originally shared by Azeddin Ez-zair, the imam of the Italian city of Florence, on his Facebook page. They show eight nuns dressed in Christian garments that look almost identical to the Burkini.

Although the photos in the Imam’s post had no caption, they clearly allude to the double standard when dealing with issues related to the Muslim minority in Europe.
