Should a Muslim girl ride shoulders in a concert? AKP MP says ‘no way’

<– Disgraceful sluts!

Images of female students wearing Islamic headscarves while riding shoulders during a university festival concert have annoyed a deputy from Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), who said he was “ashamed” of the scenes.

The spring festival at Düzce University, located in a small city in northwestern Turkey, just 200 kilometers from Istanbul, rocked with performances from famous Turkish singers and bands including Gökçe and Gece Yolcuları.

However, Selçuk Özdağ, an AKP deputy for the western city Manisa, slammed photos of the concert shared through the festival’s official Facebook page.
