‘Won’t cover myself up:’ Le Pen refuses headscarf, cancels on Lebanese Grand Mufti
Le Pen was scheduled to meet Sheikh Abdellatif Deriane, the Grand Mufti of Lebanon, in his office in Beirut on Tuesday.
After arriving, Le Pen was asked to wear a headscarf, but refused. According to AFP, Le Pen was given a veil by Mufti’s aides.
“You can pass on my respects to the Grand Mufti, but I will not cover myself up,” Le Pen told reporters.
She added that at a meeting with Egypt’s Ahmed el-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of al-Azhar (a prestigious Sunni Islam title), back in 2015, she wasn’t asked to wear a headscarf.
The Grand Mufti’s press office said that Le Pen had been informed beforehand of their requirement, Reuters reports.
The stunt still produced some praise on social media.
“Well done! You shouldn’t mix politics and religion,” one person wrote on Twitter.
Elle a bien fait; on ne mélange pas la politique et la religion
