A video recorded last year at a seminar organized by Turkey’s Akademya journal and the local municipality of İstanbul’s Üsküdar district has recently gone viral on social media, causing reaction from the public as a women speaker in the video is seen saying ‘Muslim women without a head cover are like peeled tomatoes’.

Speaking at the event called as ‘The Walking Big East’, the guest speaker Emine Merve Akyüz delivered a speech on the role of women.

'Those claiming world to be round are all Freemasons', writes executive of Turkey's AKP 'Those claiming world to be round are all Freemasons', writes executive of Turkey's AKP

“There has to be a veiling on Muslim women. Nobody would like to have a tomato with its peel opened and ripped a little. In this regard, the veiling puts the woman under a cover and protects its meaning and figure”, Akyüz observed as saying in the video.
