Turkish Airlines starts implementing Sharia law

Lipstick ban is latest in string of conservative measures adopted by airline

Turkish Airlines has banned air hostesses from wearing brightly-coloured lipsticks such as red or pink, a move which has sparked fierce debate as the government is accused of trying to Islamise the country

Numerous women posted pictures of themselves wearing bright red lipstick on social media websites to protest at the measure, part of a new aesthetics code for stewardesses working for Turkey's main airline.


Efforts to Islamise Turkey gather pace
