Guess what I wear under my Burka broaches the issue of the burka ban that has been debated in Europe. Safety issues are often cited as a viable argument for the prohibition of the burka in public spaces. It is neither possible to identify the individual beneath the burka, nor to detect any object that the person might be carrying. Guess what I wear under my Burka plays on the western scepticism of Islam and satirises the risk of the tendency toward seeing every Muslim as a terrorist.
