Spanish Minister Aído “clarifies” her statements on the Islamic veil

with one comment

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“.

Related: Death linked to Muslim veil sparks debate in Canada. It’s a pity the debate always happens after someone’s killed, not before. And it’s a pity Spanish VP does not take into account this result before making any comments.
