    Advertising of the government of Canada, created in the occasion of the international Day of the rights of women, has not gone unnoticed.

    The close-up photograph of a woman wearing a hijab is part of a series of portraits of four women and one man.

    “This is a picture that gives us the federal government for the international Day of the rights of women”, was first launched Nadia El Mabrouk, the quebec Association of North Africans for secularism, Monday, in an interview with Mario Dumont.

    Only one person out of the 5 that shows a religious sign, this muslim is accompanied by the text “#MonFéminisme means equality for all”.

    “Even at this time, there are Iranian women who are imprisoned because they remove their veil. And during this time, Canada chose to celebrate the right of women with a woman wearing the hijab,” added Ms. El Mabrouk, who qualifies this image of “shocking”.

    For the activist, with this publicity, the Canada side “of religious fundamentalism”, and it is an “insult”.

    The government of Justin Trudeau has chosen to support the world vision of the islamists, according to Nadia El-Mabrouk, by showing the veiled woman in the framework of the international Day of the rights of women.

    “It is not true that Mr. Trudeau represents the minority by doing that, it is an ideology that he is promoting,” she said.
