President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan criticized discrimination against Muslim women in EU states on Friday, saying headscarves are gradually being banned with a public – personal space trick, in an attempt to bar Muslim women from entering social life.

Erdoğan’s words came at a women’s entrepreneurship event held for the Organization Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) Women’s Advisory Council at the Presidential Palace complex in Ankara.

“Attempts to incarcerate Muslim women in their homes is spreading like a virus,” Erdoğan said.

“Today, most EU countries actively restrict Muslim women from working and getting access to education. Those who are teaching us lessons on human rights are unfortunately applauding as the most basic human rights are being trampled in their countries,” the President said.

Erdoğan also said Turkey has spent $30 billion on refugees from Syria and Iraq alone, whereas the EU has pledged to give 6 billion euros for the refugees, but gave only 800 million euros so far.

“As developed countries are searching for peace and comfort with strict security policies behind high walls, Turkey has embraced millions of people regardless of their ethnicity, religion, language and sect,” he said

  1. Erdogan, please do not blame UE ststes, look at your home?
    How did you persecute millions of Muslim who do not follow your ideology like “Gulenns followers “. ?

    How do you let Saudi Arabia killing and persecuting million innocent children in Yamen?

    UE states used to be aganist discriminating base on religion, race and gender.
    Now Extremist Muslims want to create Syariah law in non Islamic countries. It is not wise at all. Immigrant Muslim have to obey the law of land, that is Islamic duty.

    Extremist Muslim want to pray at street, want to have “ Halal food” Halal Restaurant, Islamic Bank etc

    If Muslim do that, you make or invite your enemy or Islamophobia to hate all Muslim or Islam. Promote Islam with lovely attitude toward non Muslim. Do not be arrogant.. !
