Muslim singer YUSUF ISLAM reportedly refused to speak with the female guides
at a German event over the weekend (24-25MAR07) because they weren't veiled
- despite accepting an honour for building bridges between Eastern and
Western cultures. The star, formerly known as CAT STEVENS, received a
special prize at the Echo Awards last night
(25MAR07) in Berlin for his musical, social and political work and was
praised as a bridge-builder between the West and the Islamic world.
However, when the FATHER AND SON singer, 58, rehearsed his appearance the
day before the prize giving (24MAR07), he acted rather narrow minded,
according to German publication B.Z. When the hostesses approached Islam,
who arrived with his management and his veiled wife FAEZIA, telling him that
they were his guides, he simply ignored them and didn't even take a look at
the women. Islam's manager explains, "Mr Islam doesn't speak with women
except his wife. Least of all if they don't wear a headscarf. Things like
that only happen via an intermediary."
