Hijab: Group demands adherence circular to schools

The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria, Lagos State, has asked Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to issue a policy circular to resolve the crisis emanating from the use of hijab in public schools in the state.

The MSSN, in a petition to the governor dated Tuesday, September 9, said a judgement of the Court of Appeal on Thursday, July 21, 2016, stated that wearing of hijab by pupils was their fundamental human rights.

In the petition, the MSSN urged the governor to obey the court ruling by issuing a circular to all district heads and principals to allow pupils wear the hijab.

The petition read in part, “The ongoing harassment of our members is not only unconstitutional, but also a contempt.

“The wave of discriminations, harassment and maltreatment has begun to rear its ugly head in different schools in Lagos State again despite the subsisting Court of Appeal ruling.

“We demand that you use your good offices to ensure a circular complying with the Court of Appeal judgement is urgently issued and pasted in all schools’ notice boards.”

A former Principal of Isolo High School, Mrs J. O. Shadare, had suspended five pupils of the school for wearing hijab.

Shadare was later redeployed over the matter.
