'Muslim women should be able to wear hijab at work'
by Patrick Cooke
More Muslim women would join the workforce if the Government issued a directive clarifying that the hijab headscarf could be worn at work, Imam Mohammed Elsadi said.
"Some ladies who wear the hijab do not apply for jobs because they worry they will be forced to remove it," Mr Elsadi said.
The Imam was recently speaking to Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi on the topic of wearing the hijab at work.
