The Committee for Italian Islam says that wearing the burqa or niqab is not an obligation derived from the Koran. The committee made the point at a meeting chaired by Minister of the Interior, Roberto Maroni, held at the Interior Ministry this morning. An obligation to use the burqa and niqab is not recognised as such ‘by the vast majority of Islamic juridical schools’.
