Call for the abandoning of the headscarf

A number of German-Turks have called on Muslim women to forego wearing the headscarf

After the Islam conference in Germany a number of prominent German-Turks have called on Muslim women in Germany who wear headscarves to rethink their position. According to one, Lale Akgün, “The headscarf is not obligatory, according to modern Islamic theology”

A number of German-Turkish politicians have called on Muslim women to do without the headscarf in Germany as a symbol of their willingness to integrate.

“The headscarf is a symbol of the oppression of women. Whoever requires of women that they cover their head and hair makes them into sexual objects “, said Ekin Deligöz, a Green Party Bundestag MP to a Sunday newspaper.
