Saudi Arabia’s Al Arabiya news channel has come out against The Arena host Michael Coren for wearing a niqab on air.
Coren wore a niqab on his show last week as a protest against a newly launched Egyptian channel which shows women only in full-length face and body covering.
Coren has responded with a renewed criticism of the niqab and Maria TV, stating that enforcing the covering furthers the opression of women under sharia law. Coren also criticized North American women for remaining silent on the issue.
