German pastor Wolfgang Sedlmeier hits out at Alice Weidel by donning a ‘hijab’
A Catholic clergyman has sparked a furore after donning a hijab to demonstrate his outrage over people being discriminated against on religious grounds.
German pastor Wolfgang Sedlmeier won applause from a Pentecost congregation after hitting out at a politician.
He believed far-right AfD leader Alice Weidel had spoken in a ‘condescending and insulting manner of headscarf wearers’ in the Bundestag.
She recently blasted the German Parliament for being ‘governed by idiots’ as she spoke about immigration and other issues.
The MP said: ‘I can tell you burqas, headscarf girls… will not secure our prosperity, economic growth and especially the social state.
‘Germany has become a borderless migration country for the unqualified and an emigration country for the highly qualified for a long time.’
This annoyed Sedlmeier so much that he put on a hijab at the end of his sermon at Marienkirche, in Aalen, where he is based as a pastor.
