EU Minister Bağış slams Belgian politician’s ‘Islamophobic’ photo

Turkish EU Minister Egemen Bağış has slammed a far-right Belgian politician, Filip Dewinter, after the latter posted a photo to his Twitter account showing a woman and a girl wearing hijabs standing next to garbage bags with a caption reading, “find the 5 differences.”

“Someone stepped up, an insolent person who I don’t feel like calling human, and put together the women wearing hijabs and garbage bags,” Bağış said Feb. 26 in Ankara, describing Dewinter’s move as “Islamaphobic.”

The post has also drawn criticism in Belgium.
