Woman Demands Hairstylist Make All The Men Leave Her Shop - Big Mistake

A Muslim woman in a hijab walked into a salon asking about hair coloring. The salon owner threw the Muslim woman out and defends her position.

Merete Hodne, a salon owner in Norway, is in hot water with the law for discriminating against a hijab-wearing Muslim woman. Hodne, 47, says it's a political matter, not a religious one. She says she refuses anyone with a 'totalitarian symbol.'

"All women who wear hijabs aren't a threat but when they wear a totalitarian symbol with such an awful ideology like Mohammaedanism, you never know. They could have weapons under there," said Hodne.

“I fear the totalitarian symbol of the hijab which says that I should be killed, and for me it is quite unnatural to provide good service in my situation," Hodne said to Tv2 in Norway.

The salon owner adds that her salon serves both men and women; she would not discriminate against men and have them leave the lounge because a Muslim woman wouldn't want them to see her hair.

Malika Bayan, the 24-year-old thrown out of the salon, feels victimized. She says she's even rethought her decision to wear the hijab because she doesn't want to fight discrimination, she just wants to be left alone.

"It was very offensive. It is disturbing that she treats people this way in a free country. Norway is my country," said Bayan. "She says Islam is oppressive to women, but she is oppressing me."

The hairdresser has refused to pay a $1,000 fine and plans to stand up for her rights in court.
