Toptan says no need for constitutional changes to solve headscarf issue"

There is no conflict between young women wearing headscarves and those who don't, and many of the latter want the university headscarf ban lifted, said Parliament Speaker Koksal Toptan yesterday. "Solving the headscarf issue doesn't require constitutional changes, nor changes to the Board of Higher Education (YOK) Law,"Toptan told a TV interview. "It could be solved without any need for constitutional changes."He also warned, "Whatever the outcome, debates over the headscarf issue will leave Turkey worse off. No attempt to derail Turkey from its main principles can succeed."
