London, Feb 1 (ANI): Two out of three Britishers believe burkhas should be banned in public.

A survey suggests that the veil, worn by some Muslim women, is unpopular in Britain with 64 per cent of people believing it should be illegal to wear it in public places like banks and airports.

And 61 per cent of the people polled also believe that schools should be allowed to prevent teachers wearing burkhas, the Daily Express reports.

The figures from pollster ComRes come, as a debate on whether to outlaw the veil is raging in France and Italy.

UK Independence Party MEP Nigel Farage said: "Most shopping centres forbid hoodies because they disguise the wearer. The Muslim veils are no different." (ANI)
