The wife of Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, who has been jailed by the kingdom for "insulting Islam", has urged Ontario's Premier Doug Ford to ban burqa in the Canadian province. "Nowhere in Islam is a woman required to cover her face. This is medievalist misogyny," Ensaf Haidar said. Haidar along with her three children took refuge in Canada in 2013.
