Woman in burka banned from theatre despite free ticket promo

A woman wearing a burka has been banned from a performance by Moroccan comic Anuar in Boekelo, even though the theatre had promoted the event as free to burka-wearers, local tv stations RTV Oost reports.


Two weeks ago the theatre said the first 10 burka-wearers could see the show for free, but cancelled the idea following protests from Anuar.
But three women turned up in the all-covering garment. Two took them off on request but the third refused and was not allowed in.
