Egyptian Culture Minister Farouk Hosni is under pressure to resign after saying that wearing the Islamic headscarf was "regressive".
In parliament, 130 MPs have signed a petition calling for confidence to be withdrawn from the minister.
Mr Hosni will now have to appear before two parliamentary committees to answer a number of questions.
Mr Hosni says he was only expressing a personal opinion and did not intend to offend women who wear the headscarf.
