German Minister, Von Der Visits Saudi Arabia, Refuses To Wear a Hijab [PHOTOS]

German defence minister, Ursula von der Leyen and her team refused to cover up their hair with Hijab during an official visit to Saudi Arabia. The one that angered the citizens ,was the fact that she met with the Deputy crowned Prince, Mohammed bin Salman al Saud and still refused to obey the tradition. However, an Iranian newspaper earlier on reported that  the minister said nobody in her team would be cajoled into wearing an Hijab. See it below;



“No woman in my delegation will be required to wear the abaya, as the right to choose one’s attire is the right shared by men and women equally.”

It could be recalled that German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, called for a ban on the burqa in Germany saying; “With us, the rule is: show your face, that's why the full veil is not appropriate, it should be banned.”
