The man yelled, demanding that she must “obey the rules”, reported the Daily Mail.
Firmly responding to him, the woman said: “I don’t like this veil. I don’t want to obey this rule. It’s my right”, adding that she will only wear it when he wears it.
Shortly, the man stepped out of his car and slapped the woman across the face. He also threatened to call the police on her.The woman was able to capture the assault with her mobile phone.
Drivers who supported the woman can be heard honking on the road. One person even chanted saying “we support the women of the revolution.”
