The BBC "report" that:
"Muslim Scholars in Algeria say a government ban on pictures of veiled women in passport photographs runs counter to Sharia law."
I see an issue with a passport photo of a veiled woman, maybe a touch tricky to identify her. A question, how long before a Muslim woman in the UK tries to see if she can have a veiled photo of her as her passport photo? How many "Human rights lawyers" would queue up to take on her case?
