Islamic bicycle created by Iranian

You really couldn’t make this up. Middle Eastern newspapers are reporting that a Burka-friendly bicycle has been constructed by Elaheh Sofali of Iran.

According to the Gulf Daily News of Bahrain, the bicycle “has a cabin that conceals half of the cyclist’s body.”

Of course, there’s no stipulation in the Koran that says women must cover their heads and bodies, Burka-style, it’s a later accumulation, inspired more by cultural mores than Koranic rules.
