Turkish headscarf changes

There is this good news from Turky. They have a strong civil society. Today thousands rallied in Ankara to protest the plans, saying the government is introducing Islam by the backdoor.

However, according to Euro News,the Islamist-based AK government has a safe majority in parliament, and insists the proposed changes mean only loose-fitting scarves will be permitted, not the all-enveloping burka or chador.

I hope Turks will discourge all sorts of communal tendencies that discourage their emerging secular society.
