Most Muslims in Bradford are easily identifiable as the vast majority look the same. Ie men with beard and women with veil or headscarf. Hardly a hard job to identity.
The thing that gets me is that 20-30 years ago practically none dressed like that but now it is apparently essential.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Agree as most of the Muslim women in the past would where there tradiontnal dress with the headscarf very loose on a friday or festive's etc and other days would have there hair down.

In Bradford: -

 - a lot of Sikh and Muslim women wear traditional dress of Shalwar Kameez ... long embroidered tunic and baggy trousers. The Sikhs and, I would guess 60% of the Muslims, are of Punjabi ethnic origin and that is their indigenous community language. Their female costumes are, to me, identical in style. The Sikhs seldom wear a headscarf; some Muslims do, some don't.

 - Very few Hindu women wear traditional costume except for occasions such as a visit to the temple or a family celebration. Theirs is always a sari.

 

In recent years there has been a great increase in Muslim women wearing ankle-length plain sskirts and dresses, topped off with a hijab.
