The difference between burqa, niqab, hijab. Which country women should wear a veil and when to use it?
This veils like a women’s ao dai, covering the entire body and face, leaving only the thin fabric in the eyes so that the woman can see out. The Burqa veil is made from a lightweight fabric, the body of the shirt is sewn with a hat that fits close to the top of the head, or sewed with a shawl covering the entire face, and the eyes.
This type of Hijab is both cultural and religious at the same time. The Burqa was originally made for women during the reign of King Habibullah (1901-1919) in Afghanistan in order not to tempt men, so it was popularized and considered the privilege of the rich.
Today, Burqas are considered by women to be everyday wear and should only be removed at home, away from the eyes of men who are not husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles, sons, nephews.
Niqab is similar to a Burqa veil, covering the entire body and face but revealing eyes. Niqab is the most common type of Hijab in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.
At the same time, this type of Hijab is also popular in Pakistan. It is known that the origin of this veil is the costume of women of a certain class of the Byzantine Empire (Eastern Roman Empire). Later introduced into Islamic culture when Arabs invaded the Middle East.
Wearing a Burqa or Niqab is based on the Koran’s teaching that women need to dress modestly, simply, and discreetly.
Hijab is a veil that only covers the head and neck, leaving only the face. In Arabic the Hijab means curtain or cover.
Hijab also means being modestly dressed. In the Koran, the Islamic bible, and the Hadith, the book records the words and deeds of Mohammed, requiring both men and women to dress and behave modestly in public.
However, this requirement has been interpreted in various ways by Islamic scholars and the Muslim community. Most women in Muslim countries wear Hijab in public.
Chador, also known as Chadar, is a lightweight, lightweight fabric. This veil is popular in Iran, and is worn by Iranian women in public.
Chador is a long semicircular shawl, worn by pullovers and buttoned in front.
However, many young Iranian women chose to wear thin Hijab veils instead of Chador.

Which countries force women to wear a head veil?
In fact, Burqa and Niqab are only used in areas that maintain conservative Islamic thought like Afghanistan. India and Pakistan require Muslim women to cover their heads, but there are no strict requirements on how to cover them.
Muslim women in secular countries like Turkey and Bosnia – Herzegovina allow women to have the right to be or not.
Which countries ban veil?
So far, many countries have banned Burqa veils. In Tunisia, women have been banned from wearing Hijab in government offices since 1981 and in the 80s and 90s more restrictive regulations were enacted.
The Turkish Government also recently attempted to lift the ban on Muslim veils at Universities, but was rejected by the Constitutional Court.
Turkey, Tunisia and Tajikistan are Muslim-majority countries, laws in these countries prohibit wearing Hijab in Government buildings and schools. Niqab have been banned in the Belgian city of Maaseil.
In March 2004, France passed a law banning ‘symbols or costumes that make it easy for students to show that they belong to a particular religion’ in elementary and secondary schools.
Several towns and cities close to the sea have since banned burkini swimsuit, an Australian designer swimsuit product that covers the entire body, including the head, leaving only the face.
The French Administrative Court, the National Council, has declared that the ban violates basic freedoms, but the mayors of the cities and towns have pledged to support the ban.
In 2016, Germany also considered removing the burkini swimsuit. On Monday, June 12, 2017, the Norwegian Government also proposed a bill to ban burqas in all schools, nursing homes and Universities.
The government argues that Burqa veils itself impede the communication between students and teachers. Australia in 2010 also called for a ban on Burqa towels in Parliament. The case was once again controversial in 2014 but still faced with objections.
