Debate over council's non-Muslim hijab move
by John Masanauskas
Fifteen non-Muslim women have trialled hijabs in Dandenong this afternoon as part of a social experiment, slammed by some as promoting separateness.
The experiment by two Minaret College schoolgirls was part of a short documentary being filmed for Greater Dandenong Council's "Youth Channel" program aimed at "providing awareness, insight and education".
The Council called on women to wear the Islamic headdress for three hours today as part of a "social experiment" for National Youth Week.
