Nobel Peace Prize winner “Tawakkul Karman,” ‘The mother of Yemen’s revolution,’ when asked about her Hijab by journalists and how it is not proportionate with her level of intellect and education, replied:
“Man in early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I’m wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It’s the removal of clothes again that is a regression back to the ancient times.”

Algeria forward Islam Slimani has revealed that he and his team-mates are donating their money to people in Gaza.
The north African side won the hearts and minds of many with their heroic effort in pushing Germany to extra-time in their round of 16 World Cup clash.
And now their display of generosity to the poor and needy in Gaza has further endeared the watching world.
Slimani, who plays for Sporting Lisbon, said: “They need it more than us.”
In stark contrast, Algeria’s fellow African World Cup participants Cameroon had well-documented divisions in their camp over the issue of prize money.
Algeria returned home to heroes’ welcome on Wednesday.
