The snapshot shared by Benoît Hellings has already been removed.
The scene takes place on May 30, when Benoît Hellings, sports councilor of the city of Brussels, participates in Sports Days on May 30. The latter decides to immortalize the scene. The councilman poses surrounded by children in judo costume. Among them, a girl is wearing the veil.
The snapshot shared on Facebook by Benoît Hellings quickly triggered an uproar on the web. So much so that the ecologist removes the photo from the social network.
A Schaerbeekois of Muslim confession denounced this controversial photo. "
I am shocked that an Ecoleaner Ecolo poses beside him and publicly tolerates his veil while the city authorities want to fight against sexism and want equality between men and women in sport."he explained to our colleagues.
