City of Greater Dandenong's hijab push backfires
by John Masanauskas
A local council encouraged non-Muslim women to wear hijabs after being approached by girls from an Islamic school.
City of Greater Dandenong councillor Matthew Kirwan said the school girls wanted people to understand what it felt like to wear the religious headdress.
"It's not about trying to promote one religion over another, it's about improving understanding in a multicultural society," he said.
