Coming soon to a country near you!

How's this for a headline?

The Burqa Gets a Makeover
I shit you not dear readers. ABC is running a story on how a Norwegian clothing designer is designing a new series of burqas. You know, the wonderful head wear that all women must wear in a muslim country.

For example, this lovely ensemble:

There's a rub, though. Norway isn't an islamic country. Yet.

Would someone please tell me why a woman who is not a muslim would wear one of these garments? Because as the story says:
The designers reportedly say they are aiming their collection at Muslims and non-Muslims.
Could it be that non-muslim women would have to wear this oppressive garment in order to not face the wrath of the religion of perpetual outrage? I mean, as we all know - islam is THE religion of peace, and there would really be no reason for a non-muslim to comply with any of their prehistoric rules and customs....
