Quebec woman ordered by judge to remove hijab in court seeks clearer rules
Rania El-Alloul, the Montreal woman who was asked by a Quebec Court judge to remove her hijab during a hearing in 2015, was back in court Thursday asking a Superior Court justice to clarify the rules governing religious attire in Quebec courtrooms.
Judge Eliana Marengo told El-Alloul during a hearing in February 2015 that she would only hear El-Alloul's case if she removed her hijab.
At the time, El-Alloul was in court trying to get her car back after it had been seized by Quebec's automobile insurance board.
Marengo told El-Alloul that a courtroom was a secular space, and she was not suitably dressed.
