Algeria religious affairs minister’s headscarf comments slammed
“His comments on Sunday, telling women to respect workplace rules, was criticized by the country’s Peace Society Movement, which said his comments were upsetting. The Independent Awakening Party also slammed his comments, calling on him to repent.
Although there is no law in Algeria preventing women with headscarves from working, reports of women being turned down by job opportunities because of them wearing headscarves are very common.“
Algeria is 99% Sunni Muslim, 1% Christian & Jews
