Ombudsman says banning the hijab at school is discrimination
Czech ombudsman Anna Sabatová has stood up for the Somali student of a secondary medical school in Prague who has been forbidden to wear a headscarf at school, server Lidovky.cz has reported, referring to the ombudsman office's internal document.
Muslim girls and women use the scarf, also called the hijab, to veil their hair and neck.
Sabatová says banning Muslims from wearing the hijab at school amounts to discrimination, the server writes.
