What does the burqa veil?

Shahid Nadeem of Pakistan's famous Ajoka Productions, a theatre company, has an interesting response: “I use the burqa as a metaphor. The burqa is also being used by world powers to hide what they are really doing. They are using the burqa to pretend they are fighting for justice or democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan.” He is in town to perform Burqavaganza, a play banned in Pakistan, at the National School of Drama's theatre festival.
