German Islamophobia: Teachers Back Headscarf Ban For Girls

Local Editor

With the widespread of Islamophobia across Europe, Germany's western state of North Rhine-Westphalia is considering plans to ban girls under the age of 14 from wearing headscarves.

Muslim

The Islamic Council criticized the proposal, but teachers' groups say it's a good idea.

In further details, Germany's Teachers' Association on Monday welcomed a proposal from the government of the country's most-populous state to prohibit girls under the age of 14 from wearing headscarves to school.


NRW Integration Minister Joachim Stamp announced the initiative over the weekend, claiming that young children should not be made to cover their hair for religious reasons. 


Susanne Lin-Klitzing, the head of the German Philological Association, told Bild that in a democracy no gender should be subordinate to another. "A headscarf can be seen as a symbol of that, and so there's no place for it in the classroom."


The Muslim headscarf, known as Hijab, is a symbol that protects young girls from the eyes of others.
