Spanish Minister Aído “clarifies” her statements on the Islamic veil
I must say I wasn’t very optimistic about her maintaining a so clear position, when she stated that “not all forms of cultural practices should be protected, if they are against Human Rights or discriminate the women”, specially as the Spanish Islamic Council asked to vote for the Socialists in the past elections. And of course, she has actually backtracked, remarking the right of women to be wrong sometimes, after the Spanish VP, De La Vega, contradicted her, stating “Spanish Government respects Islamic veil“.
