No Headscarf for France’s Le Pen

In a report by Reuters news agency today, the French National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen cancelled her Tuesday meeting with a top cleric for Sunni Muslims. Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian’s press office informed Le Pen that she would be required to wear the headscarf to meet with the cleric and was reportedly surprised by her refusal. Le Pen responded to the demand by stating, “You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up”.
