Communications head blasts EU court ruling on Muslim women's rights
Turkey's communications director on July 17 blasted a top EU court ruling allowing companies in member states to ban employees from wearing headscarves.
"It is unbelievable that fascism just spread to the courts. This wrong decision is an attempt to lend legitimacy to racism," said Fahrettin Altun on Twitter.
Altun also accused Europe of "seeking to embrace its dark past" instead of "denouncing it."
"We condemn this ruling, which infringes on human dignity," he stressed.
It ruled that companies in member states can ban employees from wearing headscarves if they “need to present a neutral image to customers.”
