Furious debate as teachers at Islamic College of SA’s West Croydon campus ordered to wear hijab or face sack
Non-Muslims to be ‘forced’ to wear headscarves – h/t PC
Canada, well specifically Quebec, went through a similar incident in 1994…
“So far, the QHRC has taken a different tack. That same year, 1994, it considered a second case, involving a private Montreal Muslim school that required all female teachers, including non-Muslims, to wear the hijab as a condition of employment. The school cited Section 20 of the Quebec Charter, which permits non-profit religious institutions to make certain regulations that would otherwise be deemed discriminatory (for example, to hire only teachers from its religious denomination).
But the wider Muslim community did not support the school’s practice of forcing non-Muslim teachers to wear the hijab. Many saw this practice as antithetical to Islamic principles. The commission ruled against the school, noting that Section 20 could not be used to violate rights protected under the Charter. Forcing non-Muslim employees to observe Islamic religious practice was a restriction on freedom of conscience and freedom of religion.”
h/t to all who sent this in.
