The recent decision to ban female staff from wearing the full face veil aims to put an end to student complaints of "poor communication" in class, the head of Egypt's Cairo University said Friday.However the number of women wearing the full niqab veil has increased dramatically in the past 10-20 years.In 2009, Cairo University had banned both students and staff from wearing the niqab on campus or in the university's dorms.
