Amina Sboui, the Tunisian Femen activist who was detained by authorities for almost three months after protesting topless, said she has left the radical feminist group because she believes it is Islamophobic.

Ms Sboui sparked controversy by posting topless pictures of herself on Facebook and was detained after painting “Femen” on a cemetery wall. Other members of the feminist group demonstrated to highlight her case, but Ms Sboui told the Maghreb edition of the Huffington Post that she felt some of the protests became Islamo-phobic.

Femen could not immediately be reached for comment.
