London, February 10:

The burkinis, which is a swimwear originally designed for Islamic women to protect their modesty, are soaring in popularity among British non-Muslims.

The swimwear, which was first worn by Nigella Lawson on Sydney’s Bondi beach two years ago, is now gaining popularity among British non-Muslims, who are keen to cover up their curves or protect their skin against the sun, the Daily Mail reported.

Burkinis are lightweight outfits made of Lycra and nylon that leave only the hands, feet and face showing and were originally imported from Turkey and Morocco before London-based companies Modestly Active and Modestkini started with its production.

According to Ismail Sacranie, sales and marketing director at Modestly Active, though first few years were a hard struggle, but over the past two years sales have grown between 300 and 400 per cent.

Kausar Sacranie, chief executive of Modestly Active, who designed Lawson’s burkini, said that she wanted to design something differentm which was comfortable and good to wear.

She revealed that Lawson’s endorsement of the burkini on Bondi in April 2011 was a turning point for her firm and is now gaining lot of popularity. (ANI)

Burka = Jurmana Rs. 20,000/- lagao.

Anyone wearing a Burka should be fined Rs. 20,000/-. for first offence. For second offence : Rs. 25,000/- for third offence : Rs. 30,000/- and for 4th and beyond : Rs. 10 lakhs and/or 1 year imprisonment.

Burka will NOT be allowed in the Republic of India., just like micro-minis, short-shorts along with tank tops are not allowed in Saudi Arabia. You can be nude at home in Saudi Arabia., but you have to wear Burka when you go out.

It is time to pay back in the same coin. You can go nude on the streets of India., but not wear a burka. If you want to wear burka, you certainly can : but within your home.

Burkinnis is not islamic

I like those Afghani burqas where everything is covered and the cattle see through a mesh opening across the eyes.

I Like Kahjurao Style

I like Khajurao style dress for non-muslim women, muslim women look good in Afghani Burqa. When your sisters/daughters and mothers wear it display them on TV and if voting lines are opened for them I will vote 24/7.
