Egypt insists anyone with a niqab must remove it so they can be identified when voting #elxn42

Egypt is set to ban women from voting if they are wearing ‘revealing attire’ – but insists anyone with a niqab veil must remove it so they can be identified.

More than 55million Egyptians are expected to head to the polling stations for the up-coming elections with the first round of results announced on October 30.

But officials have reportedly issued an order barring women from voting if they arrive wearing revealing clothes.

    Egyptians are obviously islamophobic. They probably have been influenced by those disgusting Christians. Our new Prime Minister Trudeau will bring it up at the United Nations. And CTV is upset at the latest Harper atrocity. CTV believes that Harper didn’t give enough recognition to the mounties who assisted in stopping the Ottawa terrorist. Why they even had Mulcair agreeing on tv. Because who is more active against terrorism than Thomas Mulcair. Harper is evil.

    Justin better get over there fast and give them heck for misunderstanding the quran and forcing true muslims’s to remove their BeeKeeper hood to exercise their right to vote.

    Well, at least they can vote in Canada without removing their niqab…

      Egypt is a backward country, since they have outlawed Islamic voter fraud.

    Why have you posted a blank picture? It’s just a black space?

    So, basically, they just outlawed women voting. Normally, this would be a good thing, but in a Muslim majority nation, not so much.
