India

Muslim boys in India wearing traditional Islamic clothing known as jubbah (fig.). Muslims follow a strict dress code, which −some regional cultural differences aside− includes the wearing of loose clothing, as well as covering the head.

 

Apart from the hands and face, the clothing must cover the entire body and may not reveal its shape. In mosques, also the feet are bare.
