Female Muslim leader: “Margart Atwood is mistaken” on niqab

Marissa Semkiw of TheRebel.media interviews a woman with more right than many to voice her opinion on the niqab controversy: Farzana Hassan of the Muslim Canadian Congress.

She talks about Stephen Harper’s and Larry Miller’s recent comments, and why Margaret Atwood is mistaken on this issue:

“The niqab is not a manifestation of feminism.”

Hassan adds that the niqab is not mandated by the Koran, and says some Muslim women who insist on wearing certain head coverings are “politicizing the issue.”
