However the hairdresser said she was fully within her rights to not colour the hijab-clad woman’s hair – and said it was not religious but political matter.
The 47-year-old Norwegian added it would have been discriminatory against her other customers if she had not thrown Malika Bayan out of the establishment.
“As most people know hijab clad woman do not get to show their hair to men. My salon is a man and women’s hair salon.
“It would have been deeply discriminatory if I had banished men from the lounge because of a woman who could not show her hair to them.”
The hairdresser was initially fined £800 by the police, but as the activist, who has spent years campaigning against the “Mohammedanism of Europe”, refused to pay she now has to appear in court.
I fear the totalitarian symbol of the hijab which says that I should be killed
The business owner said she would appeal all the way to the European Court of Human Rights if Norwegian court ruled against her.
Hodne said: “I don’t want this evil inside the doors where I’m in charge.
“I’m not afraid to lose but I won’t pay for something that is wrong. I’ll appeal to the court of human rights.
“I have dedicated my life to this. I’m not a racist. I am a political activist fighting against Mohammedanism of Europe. It’s not Muslims I’m critical of.”
The 24-year-old said: “It was very offensive. It is disturbing that she treats people this way in a free country. Norway is my country.
“She says Islam is oppressive to women, but she is oppressing me.”
