"Italian designer Eliana Lorena created the dolls for an auction at Sotheby’s Save the Children.
The Times writes,'We are surprised that Save the Children is so excited about Burkha Barbie. By rights, it should condemn the doll. By its own accounts, Save the Children seeks to create 'a world in which every child is ensured the right to survival, protection, development and participation.' We wonder if Burkha Barbie will have acid thrown in her face if she removes the burkha, which is the current fad among hard-core Islamists in Afghanistan targeting schoolgirls who abjure the offensive garment.'
"They go on to ask if Suicide Vest Ken is next."

"Save the Children" should ban the burkha because it ovesly enslaves the children.

How stupid... they hate everything west yet some will accept it.... oh please.
I guess the burka and veil will be totally fixed (glued) onto the doll... cause no one is suppose to see what is underneath ....
