A German minister has refused to wear a hijab during a visit to Saudi Arabia – saying women should have the same right to choose their clothing as men.  Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen’s stand came a week after Chancellor Angela Merkel called for the burka to be banned.

Von der Leyen was in Saudi capital Riyadh to meet deputy crown prince Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, where she voiced her annoyance at the expectation that women cover up.But it sparked anger in the deeply-conservative state, where social media users called for her to be arrested.

It comes in a week when a Saudi woman was arrested for taking off her veil in public.

WELL DONE THAT WOMAN FOR REFUSING TO CONFORM
