Rabat - Amid the growing controversy over the decision by the Ministry of Interior to prohibit the sale and production of burqa in Morocco, Moroccan Salafist Sheikh Abdelhamid Abounaim, has gone public saying he will defy the ban. “I give away the burqa for free at my house or rent a shop to sell them,” he said.
