“Le Pen told reporters that she was surprised by demands that she wear a scarf, and said she had met the Grand Mufti of Al-Azhar during a visit to Egypt in 2015 without covering her head.

“I met the grand mufti of Al-Azhar,” she told reporters. “The highest Sunni authority didn’t have this requirement, but it doesn’t matter.”

“You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up,” she insisted.”
