Muslims slam European Court Hijab ruling

 

 

Muslim groups and organizations worldwide have slammed Tuesday’s ruling by the European Court of Justice, which allows employers to ban the wearing of visible religious symbols, such as headscarves and other religious signs, warning that it will normalize anti-Muslim discrimination. 

“It is a sad day for justice and equality. At a time when populism and bigotry are at an all-time high, we fear that this ruling will serve as a green light to those wishing to normalize discrimination against faith communities,” the Muslim Council of Britain said in a statement issued on Tuesday, March 14.

The Court of Justice of the European Union ruled on Tuesday, March 14, that employers can ban their workers from wearing any religious symbol, including headscarves worn by certain Muslim women.
