Former Lebanese MP, "Women in burqas look like garbage bags"

Wiam Wahhab, leader of the Tawhid Movement in Lebanon, a former MP and journalist has caused an uproar in the Muslim world by stating,”I have been to Riyadh, Jedda, Taif, and Mecca. The women there look like garbage bags. They wear black bags (or blue ones in Afghanistan), and you cannot see a thing – no face, no eyes, no hands, no legs…”


GERMAN advertising campaign for Muslim women’s rights provides the perfect visual for the headline that reads:

“Oppressed women are easily overlooked. Please support us in the fight for their rights.”
