Aussie Feds: Banning the Burka at airports?

Throw the burka on the barbie, girls because it's apparently under consideration down under.

THE Federal Government believes wearing Islamic scarves should be banned at Australian airports, senior government sources have revealed.

Under the radical security proposal, even the most inoffensive Muslim scarf, the hijab, which covers a woman's hair and neck, would be banned, along with several other types.

Security officials are especially concerned by two other very concealing types of scarf, the niqab and the burka.
