Forcing Us To Remove Our Hijabs Before Writing Exams Is An Abuse – Muslim Women Protest

Published

on

A group of Muslim women under the auspices of Hijab Rights Advocacy Initiative has claimed that their rights were being infringed upon by as they are being forced to remove hijabs before writing examinations.

The group lamented that most women in hijabs had been denied jobs and other opportunities in the country, despite their qualifications.

The Coordinator of the group, Hajia Mutiat Orolu-Balogun, on Wednesday said their constitutional rights were being violated by the government and private agencies.

Orolu-Balogun was quoted by the Punch as saying, “Women in hijab are forced to expose their ears and heads before sitting for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination or getting Bank Verification Numbers.

“Imagine being asked to take off your shirt because you want to get your driving licence, or being told that you would not be able to vote because you wouldn’t show your cleavage in the picture on your voter card.

“These, and worse, are what a Muslim woman who wears the hijab faces when she is asked to take off her hijab before she could be allowed her constitutional rights.

“The use of hijab is a religious obligation and not an Arab culture that one might discard at will.

“Asking a Muslim woman to remove her hijab is a form of violence against her; such should have no place in a progressive society like Nigeria,” she said.

    You’re a cheat! Who tells you masquerades write exams or apply for jobs? You want a driver licence covering your face? Have you ever seen a masquerade driving before. To hell with this foreign culture termed religious. No wonder, girls in hijab penetrate and commit suicide bombings up there in Borno State, because of this stupid culture. The weather in some Islamic nations called for this covering.
