burka definition and meaning

What is a "burka"?

A burka is a loose-fitting, full-body garment worn by some Muslim women as an outer garment. It is typically made of a lightweight, breathable fabric that covers the wearer from head to toe, with only a mesh or gauze-covered opening for the eyes. The burka is often associated with conservative interpretations of Islamic dress and is worn as a sign of religious modesty and cultural identity. While the burka is not mandatory in Islam, it is required in some countries under certain circumstances, such as when a woman is in public or in the presence of men who are not immediate family members. It is a controversial garment, with some arguing that it represents oppression and others arguing that it is a symbol of religious freedom and cultural heritage.
