Hijaab symbol of Oppression, says Canadian female Minister


Quebec – The newly appointed minister of Quebec, Isabelle Charest on Tuesday called Muslim women’s Hijaab as a “Symbol of Oppression.”

Charest who is responsible for the status of women is stubborn to retract from her comments.

“Head scarf is not something that women should be wearing,” she said while addressing to the reporters on Tuesday.

However, she acknowledged that those women who choose to wear Hijaab, it’s their personal choice and she “honors their decision.”

“When they are dictated by a religion on what they have to wear, for me it’s a lack of liberty, and it doesn’t meet my values,” Charest said.

Charest was elected for the first time on October 1, she is also junior education minister.
