Burka is meant to protect from the unwanted attention and guards women from being objectified. It is, hence, the possible reason for the Burqas to be Black in color. Wearing light color of Burqas can show the body physique through the sunlight. Hence, dark colors like black and blue are used to avoid unwanted attention or to prevent the highlight of the women’s physique. Black Burkas do not entice men if worn loosely over the body. Reports state that as per Muslim tradition, it is obligatory to conceal their body physique, and so women prefer black when it comes to wearing Burqa. Black clothing absorbs both sunlight and heat radiation from the body, this is another reason, possibly, behind Burqas made available in black. Burqas, as per Muslim cleric must be loose and dark colored, however, contemporary Burqas fit the body shape of women which, according to them, has ruined the purpose of this body envelope.
