Just mentioning anything ‘burk’ will usher in a wave of criticism, but at a certain point that term that seems to have induced fear in many, jumps the shark and becomes one of those eye-rolling moments. The new burkindl is just that.
No, the burka meets dirndl is not something you can expect to see daily, but when a German woman dropped her Christian faith and converted to Islam after a journey to Israel, dropping her loved dirndl was just too hard of a sacrifice. So she created the burkindl.
Renate Hoffmann, 63, stripped her dirndl of its sex appeal, as the famous low bustline has been raised, and to keep with Muslim tradition, she had a headscarf added to the getup.
Some may call it preposterous, or an attack on their own beliefs, but she did what she could to show that she is still German to the core.
